KORBEL CALIFORNIA CHAMPAGNE
HOLIDAY COCKTAIL RECIPES
Because we can never have enough holiday cocktail recipes, the below dazzling drinks come courtesy of our good friends at Korbel California Champagne and master mixologist Saeed “Hawk” House. While Korbel has mightily helped to reimagine boozy brunch with its refined yet balanced California champagne, it also aptly lends itself to blissful cocktails, as we found out during a lovely evening out with Hawk leading the way.
Whether it’s a take on a classic French 75 or a Tequila Sunrise or the ever-so-popular Negroni Sbagliato, Hawk’s Korbel cocktails are festive and fantastic and just what you want to get your holiday good times going.
