What Champagne To Use
While I am a huge fan of Veuve, this recipe is best with a champagne
(or more likely Prosecco, since it is less expensive) you love the taste of - but is inexpensive.
If you really want to use expensive champagne, go for it - but you can also make this recipe with some great picks under $15.
You’ll want to use a good quality sparkling wine you like the taste of - but because we’re adding lemon and gin, it’s a bit worthless to add really expensive champagne.
What Gin To Use
For champagne based gin drinks, it is best to pick a botanical gin with citrus and herbal notes - not a dry or juniper gin that will have a stronger flavor.
We recommend Hendricks, Botanist, or another light botanical gin - we made this recipe with Hendricks.
We do not recommend Tanqueray, cardamom based gins, or strong peppery gins.

These cocktails are all delicious and fun - we really love the theatrical Feuerzangenbowle - Flaming German Rum Punch Recipe - it is mulled wine in a punch bowl, with a rum soaked flaming sugar cube on top - just like from German Christmas markets! So fun and delicious!
