Lemon Scented Champagne Cocktail

Slightly bitter, but still sweet, this lemon scented champagne cocktail is a good way to celebrate the start of the new year all night long!

Champagne is likely to make an appearance as you're getting ready to toast the New Year, but why wait until midnight to pop the bubbly? Mix up this simple champagne cocktail that's fresh and light, with a hint of lemon.


1 cup sugar

3 cups water

1 1/2 cups fresh lemon juice


Lemon Slices


Put the sugar and 1 cup water into a pot and bring it to a boil. Cook for 1 minute until the sugar has dissolved, turn off the heat, and allow the mixture to cool.

Combine the simple syrup with the lemon juice and remaining 2 cups water and mix well. Fill a Champagne glass half with the lemonade and half with Champagne. Garnish each glass with a lemon slice.
