Spiced Orange & Champagne

What do you look for in the perfect Christmas Champagne cocktail? The traditional recipe (our version is coming up soon) calls for brandy, a sugar cube and aromatic bitters. But with many families starting the day with Bucks Fizz, why not try something with a touch of our homemade spiced orange syrup instead?

After all, Christmas Day is one of the few days that it is appropriate to start with a glass of Champagne, which is itself, one of the few drinks that it is acceptable to consume at breakfast...

We know from the classic festive variation Bucks Fizz - (2 parts Champagne to 1 part orange juice) invented at London's Buck's Club in 1921 - that Champagne and orange have a long history of association. So if you're looking to add a little festive spice to your Christmas Day eyeopener, this Christmas Champagne cocktail featuring our homemade spiced orange syrup is an excellent variation, and almost as simple to make at home.
