I love champagne! New Years is the perfect time for it. Why not have some fun and play a little?Surprise people with some tasty colorful drinks! This champagne drink, you can make a bunch and leave it in a large bowl or dispenser that way you can also enjoy the party. I love mixing fresh ingredients in my recipes. Mint is one of my most favorite herbs to put in drinks. It makes things tasty and refreshing. Mumm is a good quality and affordable sparkling wine. You don’t need to use top quality like Don but also don’t want to give your guests a headache with cheap champagne.
