New Year’s Sunset Champagne Cocktail

December 23, 2014Sarah Khandjian

Not a big champagne fan? This New Year's try this version that combines fresh orange juice, gin, and grenadine with the bubbly.

I’m actually a big fan of champagne but I know many people aren’t huge fans of the bubbly. So if you’re hosting a New Year’s party next week or if you’re just hanging out at home try this version that combines champagne with my favorite orange juice, gin (my liquor of choice), and grenadine for a New Year’s cocktail that definitely has some punch (yep, pun intended).

Love these adorable paper coasters by The Flair Exchange. So cute for a New Year's Party.

Pop Fizz Clink! Swap traditional champagne for this bright punch version this New Year's Eve.

New Year’s Sunset
Servings 2 glasses


  • 4 oz. champagne
  • 1 oz. gin
  • 1 oz. Natalie’s Orange Juice
  • Splash of grenadine


Fill two small glasses with large ice cubes (I use this ice tray) or crushed ice, whatever your preference. In a larger glass, pour the champagne, gin, orange juice and a splash of grenadine. Stir to combine and divide evenly between the two glasses.

This recipe can be scaled to make a large batch. Simply double or quadruple the recipe and combine all the ingredients in a large pitcher. Serve in glasses over ice.

Note: If you want to make a nonalcoholic version, omit the gin and swap the champagne for ginger ale.

This recipe was originally created for Natalie’s Orchid Island Juice. Thanks so much for supporting the brands that help me make delicious recipes like this one.
