Champagne Is Officially Our Favorite Drink for Fall

You’ll find us drinking this specialty cocktail any day of the week.

The whole idea of drinking champagne exclusively for special occasions is completely outdated in our opinion. A bubbly, delicious cocktail is appropriate whether it’s a birthday or a Tuesday. If you can’t tell already, we’re serious fans, so when we heard there was a bar in New York’s Greenwich Village that was specializing in champagne-based cocktails, we knew we had to immediately go taste one (or five) for ourselves. Founder Ariel Arce recommended the WEBMD off her diverse drink menu, and we have to say, it’s just as delicious as it looks. Best of all, you only need three ingredients to make a version of it for yourself at home. Trust us, don’t wait for some big event to enjoy this cocktail! You’ll thank us later.
