DIY Champagne Bar: 3 Tips
1. Include mixers and fruit.
Invite guests to make their own cocktails with champagne and fruit juice (like orange juice, cherry, or pomegranate). Don’t forget frozen fruit like raspberries, blueberries, and strawberries. YUM!
Fun Alternative: Add POPSICLES!
2. Select a dry champagne (+ keep it chilled).
Since guests can mix their own cocktails (or opt for basic bubbly), you’ll want to start with a dry champagne so the fruit or juices won’t overpower the drink with sugar. Also, have the champagne bottles chilled and keep them cold throughout the night by placing on buckets of ice.
3. Add decorative champagne bar accessories.
