  2. I haven't actually tried this myself, but I was at a winery in VA over the weekend and they suggested making a cocktail with rose wine. You put 1/2 glass champagne (or some sort of spritzer if you prefer) with 1/2 glass rose, and pop in a few berries. They said it is yum!

  3. You can never go wrong with a classic of chambord and champagne, that's my favorite! Top it off with some floating raspberries, yum!

  5. I also love cocktails and have imbibed my fair share today (I'm at the beach, FORGIVE ME!) ... I know this isn't fancy, but I absolutely love champagne paired with any type of juice... cranberry, pink lemonade, yellow lemonade, just anything. Put it in a drink dispenser and you are good to go - a cheap drink that everyone LOVES!
