Recipe inspiration

I wanted something sparkly for a New Year’s cocktail this year, so I went to the store looking for inspiration….and I came across a bottle of Goldschläger® cinnamon schnapps that has flakes of gold floating in it.

Apparently there is 13 mg of gold flakes in each 1-liter bottle of Goldschläger….isn’t that cool??

How to make a Gold Royale Cocktail

Dip the rim of each champagne glass in water or vodka, then dip in gold decorating sugar.

Pour 1 ounce of whipped vodka, and 0.5 tablespoon Goldschläger into each champagne glass.

Top off with champagne and serve immediately.

They turned out so pretty!! They are also perfect for any special occasion, not just New Year’s!

Recipe Notes & Tips

  • If you would like a “spicier” drink, add more Goldschläger. Remember when I said it is a cinnamon schnapps? Yep, it’s hot and spicy like those red hots candies!
  • If you look closely you will notice that the Gold Royale Cocktail got more yellow as the pictures progress. As the gold sugar around the rim drops, or gets knocked into the glass, it mixes with the bubbles in the champagne and turns the drink yellow. If you do not use the sugar around the rim, your drink will be the color of champagne.
  • I used Pinnacle® Whipped Vodka, but Vanilla would work as well.
  • I used Wilton® Pearlized Gold Sprinkles {affiliate link} in case you were wondering what I was talking about. 😉
