Bubbly is a collection of more than 60 effortlessly stunning cocktail recipes featuring the most festive bottle behind the bar—champagne!
With bright, seasonal flavors, simple techniques, and no pretense, author and photographer Colleen Jeffers shares her most irresistible sparkling cocktails, alongside quick-trick tips on topics like buying the right bottle of bubbly, keeping carbonation crisp, scoring cheap vintage glassware, and making simple syrup without a stove.
Inside this beautiful book, you will find recipes including:
- French 75—tart, light, crisp, refreshing, and arguably the best known of all vintage champagne cocktails - Aperol Spritz—ideal for aperitivo hour - Paloma Punch—perfect for serving a crowd - Bubbly Mary—a modern brunch classic - Margarita Fizz—a deceptively simple and refreshing - Holiday Mail—a cheery seasonal favorite
Bubbly will quickly become your go-to resource for recipes that rely on fresh, easy-to-find ingredients for head turning flavor without an expert’s collection of bottles and tools. With an entire chapter devoted to brunch cocktails and another to party-ready punches, it’s a weapon every home cook needs in their entertaining arsenal. Inventive enough to appease the experienced cocktail creator but approachable enough for complete beginners, this book proves that a splash of champagne can make any moment a cause for celebration.
Colleen Jeffers is a craft cocktail writer and photographer based in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. She believes that anyone who enjoys a good drink should be able to make one at home, with a little attention to detail and without much fuss. In 2015, she founded the Good Drink brand to help her audience mix high impact, low maintenance cocktails at home. BUBBLY is her first book.

Bubbly is a solid read that I think will not only increase interest in craft sparkling cocktails but also introduce people to some more complex cocktails that break the stereotypes of the category. The book is geared towards cocktail enthusiasts rather than bartenders. The recipes outlined are simple enough that even someone who simply enjoys hosting would be able to make any of them without being intimidated. It’s a solid addition to your cocktail book collection or a great choice for a gift.
