GOVINO Valentine’s Day Bubbles Bar
At GOVINO, we love the idea of a serve-yourself cocktail bar — it’s a win-win for both the guests and you, the host. Giving your guests the option to craft their own cocktail lends your get-together a fun and relaxed atmosphere, and it ensures that the host is able to socialize as opposed to being tied to the kitchen mixing drinks. With Valentine’s Day coming up, we think a Bubbles Bar is the perfect interactive beverage option for your V-Day party. The idea behind our Bubbles Bar is to take the standard Champagne cocktail, the mimosa, and elevate it with a selection of fresh pressed juices and fresh fruit garnishes, allowing your guests to have fun and get creative with their cocktails. The best part? Everything can be assembled and set up ahead of time making hosting a breeze.  


The Supplies:

  • 28-oz govino decanters with lids
  • 14-oz govino whiskey glasses
  • 8-oz govino Champagne flutes
  • Schramsberg Sparkling Wine
  • Veuve Clicquot Champagne
  • Orange Mango Santa Cruz Organic Juice
  • Strawberry Lemonade Santa Cruz Organic Juice
  • Pomegranate Santa Cruz Organic Agua Fresca
  • Raspberries, pomegranate seeds, blueberries


The Assembly:

The 28-oz govino decanters are a stylish way to serve the juices, making it easy to tell which juice is which, and bringing a natural pop of color to the Bubbles Bar. For the garnishes, we actually think the 14-oz govino whiskey glasses make for a sleek and unique serving vessel. As for the bubbly, you can expect to make 6 or 7 cocktails per each 750ml bottle of sparkling wine. So assuming each guest has two to three drinks, you should plan on buying about 3 to 4 bottles of Champagne for every 10 guests you have. We recommend a one-to-one ratio of wine to juice, but it’s ultimately up to your guests’ individual tastes. Serve in 8-ozgovino Champagne flutes, and don’t forget to garnish with the fresh fruit (or fruits) of your choice!
