New Years Eve Cocktails
New Years Eve is always a time to get together with friends and family and ring in the new year!
Traditionally, New Years Eve gatherings include some sort of alcoholic cocktail and of course champagne.
16 New Years Eve Cocktails
I perused the web and found my favorite 16 New Years Eve cocktails.
To clarify, not all of these New Years Eve cocktails are sparkling or bubbly.
However, you can add the bubbly to each of these drinks very easily.
The only cocktails you shouldn’t add bubbly to is the Eggnog Martini and the Winter Wonderland Martini.
Nevertheless, these are all great New Years Eve cocktails to add a little fun to your celebration.
1. Pomegranate Margarita New Years Eve Cocktails
Notably, this recipe calls for frozen limeade, water, gold tequila, pomegranate juice, triple sec, limes, ice cubes, and fresh pomegranate seeds.
2. Eggnog Martini
This next cocktail recipe comes from Martha Stewart herself.
It is called Eggnog Martini.
Seriously, how can you resist an eggnog martini during the holidays?
This recipe calls for sugar, cornstarch, nutmeg, pumpkin pie spice, whole milk, egg yolks, and brandy.
3. Pomegranate-Champagne Punch New Years Eve Cocktails
The third drink looks very similar to my first recipe but is somewhat different.
It is called Pomegranate-Champagne Punch.
Again, this is a recipe from Martha Stewart.
It calls for pomegranate juice, pear nectar, Grand Marnier, & champagne.
4. Sloe Gin Fizz

Indeed, this used to be her favorite go-to drink back in the day!
Love that name!

5. Raspberry Beer New Years Eve Cocktails
Clearly, the sparkly bubbly ingredient in this one is beer!
Without a doubt, I had to include this one for my husband.
It contains raspberries, lemon juice, vodka, and any light colored beer, such as Stella Artois.
Mmmm! I’ve got to try this one.
6. Strawberry Granita with Champagne & Frangelico
The above New Year’s Eve sparkling bubbly cocktail is called Strawberry Granita with Champagne and Frangelico.
Unquestionably, Frangelico happens to be one of my favorite liqueurs because it has an almond flavor.
This recipe comes from a site called Matthews Puzzle and calls for strawberries, champagne, Frangelico, simple syrup, and lemon juice.

9. Candy Cane Champagne Cosmo
Number 9 comes from Squidoo and is called the Candy Cane Champagne Cosmo.
It calls for either Cointreau Liqueur or Grand Marnier, cranberry juice cocktail, lime juice, sugar, and champagne or sparkling wine.

12. Boston Sidecar
Because this cocktail is one of my favorites during the cold winter months, I had to include the above drink
It calls for light rum, brandy, triple sec, and lemon or lime juice.
Coincidentally, I drank one of these at a restaurant called Clydes in Georgetown.
It was called a Honey Sidecar.
Unfortunately, I was sick at the time and but it was so soothing on my throat.
It also had sugar around the rim.
