A sugared rim is a pretty touch—rub a cut lemon wedge on the rim of the glass, and roll in sugar. You don't need to purchase
expensive Champagne for this cocktail; just be sure to use brut, the driest Champagne, or a dry cava or prosecco.

Loosely based on the French 75, a classic cocktail of gin, Champagne, lemon juice, and sugar, this sparkling beverage uses
lemonade concentrate as a shortcut. Be sure to allow the concentrate to thaw ahead of time.

This drink is a twist on the classic Bellini, a post-World War II cocktail of white peach puree and Champagne, first mixed
at Harry's Bar in Venice. Freezing the watermelon before pureeing lends the drink a slightly slushy consistency. If you prefer
a smoother texture, simply chill the watermelon. Serve in Champagne flutes.

This simple yet elegant aperitif is garnished with icy blackberries. Purchase fresh berries, and freeze them in a single layer
on a baking sheet so they'll hold their shape.
