New Year's Eve is fast approaching, and what better way to get in the spirit of celebrating than with a new cocktail recipe—or five. From a champagne cocktail in The Agency’s signature red to a peach cosmo that will take you back to the 90s, these sips are sure to help you ring in the New Year right. Cheers to 2018.
Red Currant Champagne Cocktail → Everyone who’s anyone knows red is our color, so it may come as no surprise that we can’t get enough of this red currant champagne cocktail from the inimitable Martha Stewart. It’s an easy way to class up a not-so-pricey bottle of bubbly—or take that Dom to the next level. Get the full recipe on Martha Stewart.
Old Fashioned → It doesn’t get more classic than a good ol’ fashioned old fashioned (after all, its ingredients literally defined the word “cocktail” in 1806). And there’s a reason it’s been around so long; it’s the perfect combo of sweet and stiff, and you can mix one together in a pinch. Get the full recipe on Esquire.
Sparkling Julep → Mint juleps were all the rage at our six-year anniversary party earlier this year, but the iconic southern libation never seemed befitting of New Year’s Eve until we spotted this effervescent twist on the classic. Bottom line: the only thing better than a mint julep is a mint julep with a few splashes of Veuve. Get the full recipe on Bon Appetit.
Strawberry & Limoncello Rosé Sangria → Rosé: it’s not just for summer anymore—and neither is sangria! This pitcher favorite is perfect for a thirsty group, and it’s three main ingredients are crowd pleasers all on their own. A bonus? The combination of plump strawberries, rasberries and rosé’s signature pink hue makes for a highly Instagrammable cocktail. Get the full recipe on The Kitchn.
Peach Cosmo → Party like it’s 1999—or at least drink like it is—with this peach cosmo recipe from a year that will forever live in infamy thanks to the late, great Artist Formerly Known as Prince. It’s stiff. It's sweet. It tastes a little like candy peach rings. What’s not to love? Get the full recipe on Food Network.
