Make Florida Crystals Your Bubbly Bar Co-Star
1. Break Out The Bubbly
Skip the expensive vintages and instead stock up on dry, brut Champagne. Don’t be afraid to throw a domestic sparkling wine, Prosecco, or Cava in the mix either. Maybe even add some sparkling Rosé to suit your friends’ tastes and today’s hottest trends.
2. 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 and color to your bubbly bar. Some favorites to include are Cognac, Gin, St. Germain, Peach Schnapps, Bourbon, Goldschlager, Orange Liqueur and Crème de Cassis, but anything is fair game. After all, experimenting is half the fun.
3. 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 bubbly concoctions. Browse these Florida Crystals® cocktail recipes for mimosas, bellinis, and more!
4. Garnish With Florida Crystals
Add a touch of sweetness to your bubbly bar with the addition of festive garnishes. Organic raw cane sugar rims, frozen raspberries, fresh strawberries, honeydew melon balls, orange twists, and lemon wedges are just a few of the fun toppers you can try. Toasting sugars is 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 propose a toast to the best brunch ever.
