Default Champagne Cocktails

After noticing the tastiness of throwing either Cointreau or some Chambord in a glass of champagne, I looked up and tasted some Champagne cocktails that include rum. I enjoyed an American Flyer: White Rum, Fresh Lime Juice, and Champagne. Also created something that I really liked (don't know if it has a name) White Rum, Fresh Lemon Juice, Cointreau, Champagne.

Any other recipes?

I'm interested to see any responses. I've never mixed the two. I used to drink "Death in the Afternoon"s, but that's the only champagne mix I think I've ever had. I've never even had a mimosa

I'm familiar with a couple of champagne and rum drinks made with dark rum, but none mixed with white rum.

A drink I served friends last new year's eve was champagne, Santa Teresa 1796 and a few drops of sugar cane syrup, which is a variation of a champagne and cognac cocktail but I don't know the name of the original.

A couple of friends who didn't want one of these in the first round - because they didn't drink rum, asked for and drank several during the ensuing evening.

Question, what sweetness do you prefer in your sparkinling wines/champagnes when mixing? I usually buy Brut or Extra-Brut, but I've been drinking it on it's own. Just wondering if something sweeter would be nicer in the mix.

i usually use Brut, but i like things less sweet. i think when it comes to sweetness everyone has to adjust for there preferance.

I'm curious about using rum in a champagne cocktail, as I'm only familiar with the "traditional" champagne cocktail with a sugar cube, bitters and a lemon twist. Seems like adding another spirit could throw the whole thing out of balance.

I think that drink already has a name. An Old Cuban. Supposed to be served up in a wine glass rather than on the rocks in a highball, and should use an aged Cuban-style rum rather than white, but essentially it's the same principle.

I haven't yet tried it but I figure a white agricole-style rum could be good in this type of drink.

Incidentally, I believe the original champagne cocktail was often served over crushed ice.
