New Year's Eve is all about celebrating, and almost everyone opens up a bottle of bubbly on the last night of the year.

Champagne (sparkling wine of any kind, really) is one of my favorites, but if you wanted to give it a little twist this year, here are 5 Champagne-based cocktails, courtesy of drinksmixer.com.

Make sure you start with nicely chilled Champagne! (And keep this list of hangover remedies handy for Sunday.)

Saronno Kir Imperial

 
 

A twist on the standard Kir Royale, this one is pretty simple:

3/4 oz Amaretto di Saronno
4 oz Champagne

Pour into a champagne flute, garnish with a lemon peel.

 
4

Tropical Champagne

 
 

A little more complex, this punch-like drink is still served in a champagne flute, for an elegant look.

3/4 oz. dark rum
3/4 oz. orange juice
2-3 dashes passion fruit syrup
2-3 dashes lemon juice
4 oz. Champagne

Shake the first 4 ingredients over ice, strain into a champagne flute, top with Champagne.

 
3

Ritz Bar Fizz


 
 

This fruity pinkish cocktail would balance nicely with some spicy hors d'oeuvres.

3 oz. Champagne
1 oz. pineapple juice
1 oz. grapefruit juice
1 tsp. grenadine

Combined chilled ingredients in a champagne flute. Garnish with a sprig of mint and a cherry.

 
2

Sparkling Hunt Punch


 
 

The combination of cherry and almond flavors balances nicely with orange juice and champagne.

1/4 oz. white rum
1/2 oz. Amaretto di Saronno
1/2 oz. cherry liqueur
1 oz. orange juice
3 oz. Champagne

Shake first 4 ingredients over ice, strain into a champagne flute. Top with champagne, garnish with cherry.

 
1

Ultra-marine

 
 

When I first started bartending, one of the first things I learned is "women love blue drinks." It's completely stereotypical, and yet usually true.

Blue drinks tend to seem exotic, and are usually fruity and delicious. This one is sure to please (and super easy to make!)

3/4 oz blue curacao liqueur
4 oz. Champagne

Pour into a champagne flute, garnish with a grape or strawberry.
