Spruce up your average class of champagne with this sweet and delicious Vanilla Champagne Cocktail. Garnish with a vanilla rock candy stick or a long vanilla bean this elegant cocktail will be perfect for any celebration!
The Oscars are coming up soon and my girlfriends and I love to get together! We make our winner predictions, snack on some delicious appetizers like this Asparagus and Proscuitto Tart and drink champagne out of, dare I say it, REAL glass champagne glasses! I know, we are really living on the edge! :)
When I get a night with the girls I usually indulge a bit as I am sure most of you like to as well. My girl’s nights are far and few so I like to spice things up a bit when we do get together. Pairing your favorite champagne with some vanilla vodka takes this drink to a whole new level.
My Favorite Glasses & Barware:
I use Vanilla Vodka but if you are not looking to indulge that much, you can also substitute some vanilla extract or some sugar-free vanilla syrup as well. Me? Well, I am a big fan of vodka so this is right up my alley!
Taking it one step further I garnish the drinks with a stick of rock candy or a Tahitian vanilla bean. The rock candy will dissolve as you drink creating a sweet ending! The vanilla bean just adds more of that rich vanilla flavor!
Vanilla Champagne Cocktail would be great for engagement parties, birthdays, a fun New Year’s Eve Cocktail and so much more! I find that some of my most favorite drinks are simple spins on classics!
