Champagne: the best cocktails

On August 4, we have an official reason to uncork a bottle of champagne and drink this sparkling drink. Yes, it is on this day in France that the birthday of one of the most famous drink is celebrated. It all began exactly 347 years ago, when the monk Pierre Perignon set up experiments for the production of various wines, until one morning he presented the exquisite French public with a miraculous drink with silver bubbles. This prototype of sparkling wine came to taste the guests so much that the date of the tasting was immediately dubbed champagne, and the name Perignon became the brand of the French premium drink. Woman`s Day presents four festive cocktails based on this sparkling wine.

But is it worth limiting the festive alcohol menu to only champagne? As an alternative, Woman's Day has gathered four best champagne-based cocktail recipes. Now, guests are unlikely to doubt your ingenuity.
