Royal Champagne

A lemon champagne cocktail with liquid gold

*Sponsored by Barnabas Blattgold*

A bit of a twist on a French 75 (one of my favorite cocktails!), this festive drink has actual gold flakes in the drink. How? Barnabas Blattgold Edible Gold Flakes for Drinks! (Available on Amazon.) Simple funnel champagne into the bottle of gold leaf, screw the lid on tight, and shake until the gold leaf has broken up into tiny pieces.

You can either funnel the whole bottle of liquid gold into your bottle of champagne or pour a little liquid gold into each champagne glass, then top with champagne. Either way, it’s rather mesmerizing to watch the gold flakes in the glass! I made this drink several times during the holidays and it was a hit each time.

If you’ve never had gold before, know that it’s perfectly safe but you do have to make sure the product is truly edible gold. It doesn’t have a taste or texture. It’s purely decorative. Is it expensive? Well this bottle cost $10 and made six drinks. (They also have packs of six for $35!) Compare that to a single cocktail at a bar or restaurant. Is it a Tuesday drink? Probably not. Is it the perfect special occasion cocktail? Absolutely!
