About Varietal:
Champagne is produced as a blend between the Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, and Chardonnay grapes. The amount of each of these grapes differs from shipper to shipper, and some Champagne ? such as blanc de blancs or blanc de noir ? uses only Chardonnay grapes or only Pinot Noir grapes. There are three primary levels of quality within any given Champagne shipper. Non-vintage Champagne uses grapes blended from a number of years, vintage Champagne uses all grapes from one specific year, and prestige cuvTe Champagne uses all grapes from one specific year, from the first pressing, and has aged for a longer period of time. Not every year produces either vintage or prestige varieties, though recently about one-in-three years have done so.

Party-Size Champagne Cocktail Recipe

An intimate setting or wedding reception begs for one of these Champagne Cocktail recipes. But don't stop there! A champagne cocktail adds a special touch to any party suitable for champagne. Just use the party-size recipe version below and follow the make-ahead tips for easy party preparation.

INGREDIENTS
-1/2 cup simple syrup
-1 1/2 teaspoons Angostura bitters
-1 tablespoon lemon juice
-1/4 cup Cognac (or Brandy or Grand Marnier)
-2 (750ml) bottles champagne
-Orange twist halves and cocktail cherries for garnish

Simple Syrup
: Dissolve 1 part sugar in 1 part boiling water. Cool.

Chill all ingredients before assembling. Combine simple syrup, bitters, lemon juice and Cognac and set aside. Refrigerate if making ahead. When you are ready to serve, thread the orange twists and cocktail cherries onto picks and insert in champagne flutes. Pour the simple syrup mixture into a pitcher. Gently stir in the champagne. Pour into flutes. 14-16 servings.

Tip:Make as much of the simple syrup mixture as you think you'll need ahead of time. Use a scant cup of the mixture per 2 bottles of champagne.
