The approaching New Year celebration is a perfect excuse for me to try out a new bourbon cocktail. Not that I need an excuse, but it sure makes me feel better.

The Sparklin’ Kentucky Lime brings together the flavorfulness of bourbon, freshness of lime, and festiveness of Champagne to create the ultimate New Years cocktail. But in case this one doesn’t float your boat, I’ve found seven more which might be more to your (or your guests’) liking.

Sparklin' Kentucky Lime

The Sparklin’ Kentucky Lime

1 oz bourbon

1 oz lime juice

4 oz Champagne

Lime wedge (garnish)

  1. Add all ingredients in a highball glass over ice.
  2. Stir to combine.
  3. Garnish with a lime wedge

If bourbon isn’t your thing, try one of these other cocktails.

Red Velvet Cocktail

Red Velvet This play on Black Velvet utilizes Framboise instead of Guinness to create a lighter and fruity concoction.


Rosemary Gin Fizz

Rosemary Gin Fizz While gin might not seem inherantly festive, this fizzy drink is definitely worthy of highlighting at any New Year Eve party.

New Years Rock

New Year Rocks The surprising addition of rock candy adds glamour to a simple cocktail of Champagne and bitters.


Blush Gin, St Germain Liqueur, and citrus juice come together to make a classy and elegant drink that will leave your guests pleased and wanting more.
