Champagne Cocktails for New Year's Eve

First of all I want to mention, if you are a vegan check out Barnivore for the ultimate guide for vegan (dairy-free) wine and beer. Champagne is generally dairy and gluten free unless cross contaminated with beer. I don't buy Champagne often but when I do it usually comes from Trader Joe's. Here are a few recipes to try out this New Year's Eve.

Holiday Champagne 
1 sugar cube
1/2 oz Cointreau
1 oz. Absolute Mandarin vodka

5 oz. Korbel Champagne

One last tip, keep some coconut water on hand just in case you wake up with a hangover. Coconut water is the most hydrating beverage you can consume. Also, some extra B12 or a B Complex wouldn't hurt. Alcohol consumption makes it harder for the body to absorb B vitamins. For more hangover help check out last year's blog How Not To Be Green on St. Patrick's Day.
