Tangerine Ginger Champagne Cocktail/Mocktail

We celebrated Christmas this year with this tasty new champagne cocktail creation.  It was such a hit, in fact, that our dad had to run out and buy more champagne!  And since it is the new year, we thought we'd also offer a healthier, non-alcoholic (although equally delicious) version of it.  Happy new year!

Tangerine Ginger Champagne Cocktail

Makes 6

1/2 cup sugar
1/4 cup water
2 teaspoons freshly grated ginger
Rind and juice of 6 tangerines
Add sugar, water, ginger and tangerine rind to a saucepan. Bring to a boil until sugar is dissolved. Let cool. Add tangerine juice and stir. Divide mixture between six glasses. Fill each glass with champagne!

Tangerine Ginger Sparkling Mocktail

Makes 1

1/4 teaspoon tangerine zest
1/4 teaspoon fresh ginger
1 tablespoon tangerine juice
1 lime wedge
Sparkling cider

Add tangerine zest, ginger and tangerine juice to a champagne glass and stir.  Top off with sparkling cider and a squeeze of fresh lime juice.


  1. I loved this so much! I want one every morning! AND I think I'm going to make these on our "girls weekend" away in Wisconsin! Except, do they have tangerines in Wisconsin in February? Do you think I can smuggle some in my luggage?

  2. I just picked up a bag of blood oranges - do you think it would be a good substitute for tangerines?
