Make Florida Crystals Your Bubbly Bar Co-Star

Nothing gets the party started like poppin’ a bottle of bubbly. Host a Galentine’s Day brunch worth bragging about by treating your gal pals to a champagne-bubbly bar for the books.

Setting up a self-service champagne bar will not only add another level of style and sophistication to your celebration, but it will also stretch your booze supply and allow you more freedom to mingle with guests and (dare we say it) actually enjoy your own party. All you need are a few bottles of bubbly, aperitifs, fresh juices, festive garnishes and of course Florida Crystals organic raw cane sugar. For step-by-step help, follow this expert guide to setting up your bubbly bar.

Break Out The Bubbly

Skip the expensive vintage sparkling and instead stock up on dry, brut champagne. Don’t be afraid to throw a domestic sparkling wine, Prosecco, or Cava in the mix and maybe even some sparkling Rose to go with your Galantine’s Day theme. After all, who doesn’t love pink?

Mastering the Art of Aperitif

Now that you’ve got the champagne covered, let’s move on to the liquor. Aperitifs are alcoholic additions that will bring some extra flair, flavor, color and a sophisticated element of experimentation to your bubbly bar. Some favorites to include are Cognac, Gin, St. Germain, Peach Schnapps, Bourbon, Goldschlager, Orange Liqueur and Crème de Cassis.

Stock Up On Fresh & Fruity Mixers

The key to a truly amazing champagne bar is having an interesting variety of high-quality, fresh juices to mix with your mimosas, bellinis, poinsettas and whatever else you’re thinking of concocting.

Garnish With Florida Crystals

Add a touch of sweetness to your bubbly bar with the addition of fun and festive garnishes. From organic raw cane sugar rims to frozen raspberries, fresh strawberries, honeydew melon balls, orange twists, lemon wedges, and so much more. Toasting sugars are another unique way to transform simple champagne into a colorful signature cocktail that everyone will remember. The garnishes are the final touch and the cherry on top of a well-prepared bubbly bar, so toast to you and your bffs on the best galentine’s day brunch ever.
