The 2016 roller coaster ride is coming to an end. And if you, like us, have relished the happiest highs and survived the bluest blues, then you deserve a world-class cocktail.
We've gathered five Champagne-inspired cocktails from a few of our favorite blogs, starting with the classics and ending with a fun and fruity sparkler. Any one of these delicious drinks will help you say good bye to all that was rotten, give thanks for all that was good, and toast hello to a new beginning.

Is NYE a cozy night in laughing and crying to When Harry Met Sally with your Harry or Sally? Are you hosting a dinner bash for family and friends? Or do you dress to the nines for a midnight cruise and toast under the fireworks? However you celebrate, magic can happen on New Year's Eve. It's a blessing, really, to be given this one night every year to look back on both our triumphs and our mistakes, to move forward, to set new goals, and to celebrate.
May 2017 bring you and yours much happiness, good health, and sweet success.
