1. Classic Champagne Cocktail

You can't go wrong with a classic: spirits, bitters, and refreshing citrus add up to a perfect celebratory sipper.

2. The Classic Mimosa

It's not just for morning-after brunch. Help sustain your guests for the night of revelry ahead with this vitamin C-packed libation.

3. Bellini

Mario Batali knows his way around a cocktail. Combine Prosecco with fresh white peach puree and you're good to go with this festive favorite.

4. French 75

This lemony libation is bright, crisp and completely delicious.

5. Kir Royale

This iconic French cocktail fusing black currant liqueur and champagne is the epitome of elegant.

6. Pomegranate Mimosa

The Greeks celebrate by smashing pomegranates. Why not carry the theme over with this ruby-red, sweet-tart treat?

7. Jubal Early Punch

Don't want to spend your evening mixing drinks? Serve this up punch-style, instead.

8. Poinsettia Cocktail

Orange zest adds refreshing zing to this vodka, champagne and cranberry juice concoction courtesy of the king of Creole himself, Emeril Lagasse.

9. Black Velvet

Why wait until St. Patrick's Day? Even the diehard beer drinkers in the bunch will be won over by this Guinness-sparkling wine mix thanks to its full, slightly creamy body.

What's better than a martini? A pink martini. A mix of fruity spirits, fresh lime, and fresh raspberries makes this an irresistible addition to the night's festivities.

11. Killer Mango Champagne Cocktail

Mango might be the last flavor you think of when you think of champagne cocktail, but a five-star Food Network rating is good enough for us. And besides, who couldn't use a taste of the tropics right about now?

12. Apricot Fizz

Give your guests a fruity fix with this bright, beautiful cocktail.

13. The Imperial Spritz

Aside from its awesome name, this divine cocktail packs a flavorful punch. A lemon wheel and fresh mint bouquet garnish add to its festive flair.

Fresh blood orange, rosemary simple syrup, and Aperol -- "like the national anthem" of Italy, according to designer and blogger Athena Calderone -- make this an unexpectedly delicious alternative to the usual.
