5 Sparkling Drinks to Whip Up for World Cocktail Day

Because what's more worldly than a glass full of bubbly?

Every year on May 13th we raise our glass to one of the best holidays ever created — World Cocktail Day. (That's right, world, as in the whole entire world!) And this year, the lovely celebration just so happens to fall on a Friday, what could be better?

Of course, you could celebrate by imbibing any number of spirits — whiskey, vodka, gin, etc. — but my personal preference is the most worldly (read: classy) beverage of them all: Sparkling wine. 

And whether you choose to pick up a bottle of French Champagne, Italian Prosecco, Spanish Cava, Portuguese Espumante or any other variety of sparkling wine, these 5 bubbly-based cocktails are a must-try. I'll toast to that!
