It’s time to say goodbye to 2019, and hello to 2020. No matter what your plans may be for New Year’s Eve, this festive cocktail is a great addition to any event, even if that event is watching the ball drop on TV from the comforts of your own home. I love how the ruby port and orange juice add a bit of fruity punch to the depth of the brandy and champagne. It’s a fun twist on classic champagne cocktails.


  • 5 ounces brandy
  • 3/4 ounce ruby port
  • 3/4 ounce orange juice
  • 4 ounces champagne

Pour the brandy, ruby port, and orange juice into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake well then strain into a flute glass and top with champagne. Cheers to 2020!
