Stock the fridge and prepare to bring in the new year with a heavy pour and the largest Champagne flute you can get your hands on. 2021 has been a wild ride of a year, to say the least. While our local stores were once bare of toilet paper and paper towels, in the coming days we will begin to see empty shelves lining stores once again where sparkling wines and Champagne once lived as we all drink our way into 2022. 

Once you’ve acquired all of the sparkling wine you can, whip up a few of these unique Champagne-based cocktails to clink with. A dash of bitters, a drizzle of pomegranate molasses, or a grapefruit peel rose will have you shaking up tasty rounds like a trained professional. 

Whether you’re ending the year in the house (where we all have seemingly spent most of our time this year) or with a few friends, keep one of these tasty cocktails in hand as the clock strikes midnight. Check out the full list below and cross your fingers that 2022 brings brighter days.
