Beautiful blue Curaçao makes this Winter cocktail feel cold without ice in the glass. This champagne cocktail is also a winter vodka cocktail.
Don’t let the the bubbles mislead you. This drink has a lot of alcohol.
Treat it with respect. Make a toast or sip it slowly at an event or with a friend. Perfection.
It looks deliciously wintry when garnished with sugared blueberries.
Chill the glasses ahead and dip the (slightly wet) glass rim in sugar for even more frosty ambience.
This is a very simple champagne cocktail to make. There is no fuss at all. You can have two cocktails ready in 2 or 3 minutes. It won’t take long at all to whip up enough to serve at a small dinner party.
If you have a winter wedding, bridal shower, holiday or other special event, this winter cocktail is a good candidate. It’s excellent for toasting New Years!

Icy Winter Cocktail:
Our Icy winter Cocktail looks beautiful as a place setting at a special winter event. Or on a toasting tray.
We added curaçao for the sweetness and the beautiful blue color. The combination of these elements works great together.
However, We do have a few tips for the very best experience with this drink.
We recommend you use a smooth, higher grade vodka. A cheap harsh vodka will give you a sharp flavor that is not desirable. Choose a sweet sparkling white wine or champagne like Prossecco or Moscato rather than dry.
A sweet Champagne or sparkling white wine blends well with the lemon juice, vodka and curaçao to create a lovely bubbly drink you will enjoy.
Total Wine has a good selection of wines and champagnes if you are buying online. 🙂
This drink is a better toasting cocktail than party hardy drink. There is a lot of alcohol in the Icy Winter Cocktail. Just one of these is all you will need. 🙂
Icy Winter Cocktail is a well blended champagne cocktail made with vodka, curaçao and sweet sparkling wine or champagne. This is a perfect toasting drink or winter evening sipper.
- 2 oz. Vodka (choose a smooth flavored vodka-we used absolut)
- 1 oz. blue curaçao
- 1/2 oz. lemon juice ( fresh squeezed is best)
- 5 oz. Champagne (sweet not dry, Prosecco or Moscato)
- fill your shaker with ice
- Add the Vodka, curaçao and lemon juice to the shaker.
- Seal and Shake the cocktail until the shaker is very cold.
- Strain the shaker contents evenly into two champagne flutes
- Fill the glass (gently) to the top with champagne
- Garnish as desired. We used three sugared blueberries on a cocktail pick set over the glass.
For the best flavors, use a smooth vodka and a sweet sparkling white wine or champagne. Dry is going to give you a harsh taste in this drink that is not pleasing
