Flamboyant, crisp, and tart. Champagne, raspberries, and crème de cassis; none of these are very sweet, yet when you bring them together they create an invigorating cocktail that will tickle your taste buds in all the right ways.

 

10, 9, 8, 7… 3, 2, 1. Happy New Year! A year ago, I spent New Year’s Eve in New York City, where I was living at the time, and drank more champagne than I can remember. “What’s the issue with that?” you may ask. Well, I don’t particularly care for champagne.

 

Cut to today; I have almost an entire bottle of champagne left from making one of my favorite cupcake recipes, Raspberry Cupcakes with a Champagne Buttercream Frosting.

 

I can’t just throw it away so, I decided to revisit this bubbly libation to try to find something I would enjoy. Using the leftover raspberries from my cupcake endeavor and a splash of crème de cassis, I created this baroque cocktail and realized champagne isn’t all that bad after all.

Choosing the right champagne can be tough, but here are some things to look for when you are buying champagne. First, the size of the “pearls” or bubbles is a huge factor. The better quality champagnes will have smaller pearls and should really sparkle in your mouth. Also, taste is probably the biggest consideration to make when buying champagne. Ranging from doux (sweet) to brut (dry) to extra brut (extra dry), look for a good match to the food you are preparing.
