13 Champagne Hacks To Try This New Year’s Eve

It’s not New Year’s without a bottle, or five, of Champagne. But when you’ve celebrated the same way every year, why not try something new and exciting? We’ve found some seriously genius ways to serve your bubbly this New Year’s Eve, so you can ring in 2017 the best way possible.

  1. BUILD A CUP TOWER

    This is the most classic and impressive trick in the New Year’s Eve book. You should use the old fashioned cups for this to work, making your get together that much fancier.

    2. BREAK OUT THE MINI BOTTLES

    Pair these adorably mini bottles with decorative straws and everyone will be impressed by your party presentation. This will also help with portion control so things won’t get so sloppy later.

    3. MAKE JELL-O SHOTS

    Get creative with your jell-o shots for every holiday! These gold-leaf jell-o shots created by Sugar & Cloth are a prime example of getting clever. Once people at your party get their hands on these, they’ll be talking about them all night and into tomorrow.

    4. SERVE COUNTDOWN FLUTES

    The last 10 seconds to midnight are the most exciting. Make those moments even more entertaining by adding numbers to everyone’s glasses and ask them to either lift or drink when they’re number is chanted.

    8. BUILD A DIY BAR

    Put out fresh fruits (strawberries, raspberries, and pomegranates are particularly well suited for champagne), juices or flavored seltzers, and a mix of Champagne, prosecco, rosé, moscato, and more. This provides fun mix and match options for your guests to sip on throughout the night.

    9. POUR IT OVER ROCK CANDY

    The wintertime equivalent to summer’s popsicle fad is sparkly rock candy. Top off everyone’s glass with one of these sweet treats to give it an extra oomph.

    10. PASS OUT FORTUNE COOKIES

    Hang a cookie on the rim of each flute so your guests can read their fortunes for the upcoming year and it serves as a yummy edible garnish too.

    11. RIM GLASSES WITH PRETTY SUGAR

    Wet the edge of each glass with water or a lemon wedge, then dunk them in decorative sugar you have left over from decorating your Christmas sugar cookies. A fun element to plain old cups!

    12. ADD FROZEN BERRIES

    Instead of ice cubes, use frozen berries to keep your cup cold. Keep a bowl of loose cranberries (or any other type of berry you prefer) or put an assortment on a skewer and tell guests to help themselves to the stash in your freezer.

    13. CRACK SOME CANS

    A low-key get together calls for simplicity. If you’re splitting Chinese with your girlfriends and watching New Year’s Rockin’ Eve, then you need these convenient cans that are still very cute.
