Ingredients you’ll need to make the Champagne Sunset

Champagne Sunset Ingredients
Champagne Sunset Ingredients

The Champagne Sunset cocktail is made with Brandy, lemon juice, tangerine juice, and champagne. Tangerine juice may be difficult to find, so I use Izze Sparkling Clementine.

Need to know what champagne to buy? I am not a champagne connoisseur. I’ve tried expensive champagnes like Dom Pérignon, Jouet, and Veuve Clicquot. But if I’m mixing champagne, I tend to stay under $15. Sweet champagnes are my preference, but until recently, I didn’t know that Brut meant unsweet and Extra Dry sweet. As you can see from the photo, I settled on Korbel Extra Dry.

You can only have a champagne cocktail with champagne flutes. Well, you can, but it’s just different. If you don’t have any champagne flutes, try these from Lenoxthey are simple yet elegant.

Mixing a great cocktail requires a great shaker. I have at least a dozen shakers, but this one from OXO is my favorite. The shaker doesn’t leak, and the cap will measure from 1/2 to 1.5 ounces. And it is dishwasher safe! You can’t go wrong with OXO.

How to make the Champagne Sunset

I use fresh lemon juice, but you can use lemon juice from a bottle in a pinch. If you need an excellent citrus squeezer, try OXO.

Pour the tangerine, brandy, and lemon juice into a shaker filled with ice. Shake for 5 seconds, then pour the strained ingredients into a champagne flute. Top it off with Champagne.
