Bubbly galore: the best champagne cocktails for nye!

At Yourlbb we love bubbly. When there’s something to celebrate we pop a bottle! “The best time to celebrate is whenever you can” is our motto for life ;-) When we go out for a nice dinner with friends a bottle of  Champagne is our favourite drink to start the evening with. For New Year’s Eve a nice glass of bubbly is a must for every party! We found 3 x delicious champagne cocktails for NYE. Enjoy!
