Liquorice Champagne Cocktail for the Holidays

The Holiday Parties are in full swing and nothing is more elegant than serving Champagne Cocktails. This one is very different from other drinks I have made before, since it requires leftovers from my Liquorice Mulled Wine Recipe.

I love making gløgg (mulled wine, hot spiced wine) but I never know what to do with the leftovers. Sometimes I simply place the pot in the fridge and then reheat on the following day – but that takes all the fun (read alcohol!) out off it.
So that is how and why I came up with this Liquorice Champagne Cocktail.

This Liquorice Champagne Cocktail Recipe calls for either Vodka, Rum or Whiskey. Rum for sweetness, Vodka for Freshness and Whiskey for some smokiness – Pick your personal favorite!

If Liquorice isn’t your favorite flavor I am sure you will enjoy this Ginger Rum Cocktail instead. It is fresh with strong ginger flavor and a little cinnamon on the rim.

Last Year I made this Pine infused Christmas Cocktail, so if you are for bitter notes in your drink – try this one.
