Maxime Iattoni

It's the time of year for raising a glass, but with so many toasts — to the season, to old friends, to the new year, to all things merry and bright — it's possible that we find ourselves facing that most luxurious of problems: a straightforward glass of bubbly starts to feel just a little old hat. To prevent Champagne fatigue, SAVEUR asked some of our favorite chefs and mixologists to share their recipes for cocktails that elevate sparkling wine to something else entirely. Whether sweeter, more bitter, more elegant, or more casual, these seven twists on the classic put a fresh spin on any toast.
