A New Year’s Eve countdown is not complete without a glass of Champagne in hand, and we’re OK with that. There are so many bubbly options to choose from these days—it can be overwhelming! But one thing’s for sure, Champagne is totally having a moment. Therefore, we’ve rounded up our favorite bubbly to drink on New Year’s Eve (and any time of the year) and we hope you’ll use this as a guide to picking out a bottle to celebrate the start of 2018. Cheers!
André: Does this remind you of your early 20s? It does for us, but there’s no denying Andre is a great affordable bubbly to use in punches and signature cocktails if you plan on serving up a drink for a crowd this NYE!
Freixenet Sparkling Cordon Negro Brut Cava: Another affordable option, and the black-and-gold bottle is perfectly festive for NYE.
Ruffino Prosecco: For something a little fruitier, try Ruffino’s Prosecco (it also makes a great mimosa the morning after).
Mumm Napa Brut Prestige: This crowd-pleasing bubbly is easy to sip and not too dry.
Veuve Clicquot Brut Yellow Label: If there’s a time to splurge on a nice bottle of Champagne, it’s New Year’s Eve and Veuve Clicquot is always our go-to for special occasions.
Barefoot Cellars Bubbly Brut: And for those who prefer sweeter bubbles, Barefoot’s sparkling wine is a great (and affordable!) option!
Veuve Clicquot Rosé Champagne: Fruity and full-bodied, this rosé Champagne is a sweet option in a really pretty bottle.
Chandon Rosé: Another solid rosé Champagne option, this fruity drink is a pretty-in-pink and tasty choice for toasting the new year.
Piper-Heidsieck Rosé Sauvage: Featuring a scarlet color and a dark berry aroma, this rosé is sure to please anyone who sips it this New Year’s Eve.
Sofia Coppola Blanc de Blanc: This light sparkling wine is fruity and refreshing, and each bottle is gift-wrapped in pink cellophane styled after a peony.
