Ginger Champagne Sparkler Print Recipe Print Recipe

It’s Friday, I figured you needed a drink.

That’s the only plan we have this weekend, drinks at our favorite local spot. Just the two of us.  <happy dance, happy dance>

This is a working weekend for me, working on something really, SUPER awesome and BIG! Obviously, I’m going to share it with you, but you’ll have to wait until next week.

One hint: Health.

Alright, what’s everyone else doing this weekend? baking/cooking? Celebrating Halloween like everyone else? Yeah, we’re totally lame. Whatever you do, have fun & be safe!

BTW: For those who are gluten-free, here’s a big long list of candy that’s safe!

This is a delicious champagne cocktail, perfect for a wedding or baby shower, holiday party, girls night, etc.


Ginger Sparkler


  • 2 teaspoons fresh ginger, peeled and finely grated
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 [750ml] bottle of sparkling wine [i.e.  Cava, Prosecco, or Champagne]


Set a fine-mesh sieve over a small bowl; set aside.

In a small saucepan, boil ginger, sugar, and 1/4 cup water until it becomes a syrup, about 2 minutes. Remove from heat and pour through sieve and into a bowl, discarding solids.

Pour about a tablespoon of syrup into each champagne glass. Top with sparkling wine, gently stir.


*to store syrup, refrigerate in an airtight container, up to 1 week.

    It’s 7am right now and I’m already day dreaming about the two of us, sitting on a patio somewhere, wearing sunhats and huge sunglasses, drinking (a lot) of these and discussing our set list and wardrobe changes for our tour.

    We need refills.

    Champagne with ginger sounds decadent. With holiday parties right around the corner this is a must do!

  • Laura @ A Healthy Jalapeño

    I love this. I normally use St. Germain liquor for a ginger taste in my champagne, but this is much better with fresh ginger. yumm
