Champagne Cocktails

Champagne is a delicious treat, and 25% of all Champagne is sold between Christmas and New Year's Eve! If you're going to be drinking cocktails, make sure they are low carb Champagne cocktails!

Remember that Champagne has sugar added to it, so it's already between 5g/glass for non-sweet sparkling wine up to 10g/glass for sweet versions (like Asti Spumanti and Prosecco). So you don't want to add in high sugar mixes to that, to amp up the sugar content! Instead, go with some zero-carb mixers to make your cocktails.
