This Saturday we ring in the New Year, and what better way to celebrate than with champagne? Below are some easy-to-make cocktails using our favorite bubbly drink. These will be sure to keep you toasty all night long! 

1. Simple + Sweet 

   Our first cocktail is for the party host who is in a time crunch. Simply, buy a bottle ( or 2) of your fav champagne, packages of rock candy, plop them in, and bottoms up!
