Nelson's Blood is a champagne cocktail created from an unexpected mixture of champagne and tawny port, two entirely different derivations from standard wine. Nelson's Blood is named after Horatio Nelson, a famous British naval officer during the late 18th century.
Admiral Horatio Nelson achieved some spectacular victories during the Napoleanic Wars, most notably the Battle of Trafalgar in 1805 where he was killed. Nelson's Blood is a champagne cocktail unlike any other.
Nothing's better for beating the heat or relaxing after a hard day than a nice cold cocktail. Some of the best of these cocktails are made with champagne or sparkling wine, not just the spirits people usually use for cocktails.
The Champagne Cooler is a great champagne cocktail and it's simple to make because it only requires champagne or sparkling wine, some brandy, and a bit of any orange liqueur: Triple Sec, Cointreau, or Blue Curacao.
The ale flip is a complex cocktail made from ale, brandy, lemon juice, egg, sugar, and ginger. Technically an ale flip is more a beer cocktail than a wine cocktail because the primary alcoholic ingredient is beer rather than wine (brandy).
Whether it's a beer cocktail or a wine cocktail, flips of any type are among the oldest mixed drinks. Flips were originally drunk aboard English ships where mixtures of rum, sugar, and eggs were heated with red-hot iron to create froth ("flipping").
Blue Curaçao is a popular addition to champagnes and sparkling wines, with the most basic such cocktail being the Champagne Blues cocktail: a mixture of champagne, Blue Curaçao to taste, and a bit of lemon.
Blue Curaçao is made from a relative to the orange, so it has a flavor similar to oranges and is complimented by the addition of other citrus flavors such as lemon or an orange liqueur like Grand Marnier.
Mixing stout beer and champagne may sound unappetizing, but Black Velvet is a popular drink because the beer and champagne compliment each other. Black Velvet is also called a Bismark because it was reportedly a favorite drink of German Chancellor Otto von Bismark.
The Black Velvet was created in 1861 in London while England mourned the death of Prince Albert, the consort of Queen Victoria. A "poor man's" Black Velvet can be created with apple cider or perry instead of champagne.
