The Father Time Champagne Cocktail

This champagne cocktail will certainly stand the test of time! A combination of sweet, tangy, crisp and bubbly, it's a cocktail recipe we are always happy to pour. 

The minty addition of peppermint schnapps offers a delightfully refreshing, light and bubbly sip that gives this drink a unique flavor few will expect, but all will enjoy.

As crisp as this cocktail might be, it's also incredibly festive and enjoyable during the cooler winter holidays.


1/2 ounce peppermint schnapps

4 ounces chilled champagne

peppermint stick for garnish


Pour 1/2 an ounce of the peppermint schnapps into a chilled champagne flute. Top off with the champagne and garnish with a peppermint stick. We love the peppermint candies with a bit of a curl, but if serving around the holidays, a candy cane is just as festive and appropriate!
