It’s hard to believe we are just a few short weeks away from 2020—this year has absolutely flown by! Since I graduated college, my New Year’s Eve plans have varied. I’ve done everything from taking a trip with friends to going to one of those big open bar parties to having a nice dinner and lowkey night at home. The one thing that has remained the same about my NYE, no matter where I’m at, is that I love indulging in a champagne toast.
To celebrate 2020, I am planning to put a festive twist on the timeless classic and make Raspberry Mint Champagne Cocktails to celebrate the new year with. I wanted to go ahead and share the recipe today in case you’re in the process of planning your NYE festivities like I am!
If you’ve been reading here for a while, you know I’m not a huge cook—so it should come as no surprise that I don’t really enjoy making my own simple syrup for cocktails either. That’s where Master of Mixes comes in! They have a line of great cocktail essentials that make it easy for me to mix up a delicious cocktail from scratch. And, it just so happens, the Master of Mixes Mint Syrup is the perfect mint-flavored simple syrup for this cocktail—and for everything from mint juleps to mojitos. Made from fresh muddled Pacific Northwest spearmint, the flavor is unbeatable and ensures you can mix up a great craft cocktail at home—even if you’re not a pro bartender.
Here’s what you’ll need to make these delicious raspberry mint champagne cocktails:
- 4 ounces chilled champagne
- 1 ounce Master of Mixes Mint Syrup
- ½ ounce fresh lime juice
- 1 raspberry rock candy lollipop
- Fresh mint and raspberries for garnish
To mix these up, fill your champagne flute up with 4 ounces of chilled champagne, or about three-fourths of the way full. Pour in 1 ounce of Master of Mixes Mint Syrup and ½ ounce fresh lime juice, and stir gently. Once settled, place 1 raspberry rock candy lollipop in the flute. Garnish with fresh mint and raspberries if desired.
Cheers to 2020!
