Champagne Cocktail

Tangerine Champagne Cocktail

  • Author: theperksofbeingus


Years ago, I was at a dinner with Bruce and I ordered a pomegranate martini. When it arrived, I was so excited to see what the bartender had mixed up for me. Sadly, it tasted like cough syrup. I called the waiter over, and was told that the bartender used the finest of mixes.

Making simple syrups, using fresh fruit, and using jams and fresh citrus is always the way to go. This particular drink was made with an incredible marmalade from Zelos Greek artisan 

Zelos Authentic Greek Artisan brings a premium Greek culinary experience to the US while supporting small businesses in Greece to grow and prosper.
The artisans and producers honor their craft with zēlos, the Greek word for zeal, great energy and enthusiasm. If you have not checked them out, please do so, as you will find the products delicious and the customer service to keep you coming back!

Now, let’s make a cocktail, shall we?




Mix the Cocktail

  • Add all but Champagne into a cocktail shaker
  • Shake vigorously with ice
  • Strain into Champagne glass

Top with Champagne and Garnish

  • Top with champagne
  • Garnish with candied lemon or orange slice


This makes enough for 1 cocktail, but feel free to use the scale button (how genius is that?) to make a pitcher of them for a brunch, party, or shower?  Cheers!
