Barefoot Wine is a leader in the market space when it comes to affordable wines, but the price isn’t an indication that there’s a lack of quality for the value. For New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day, the popular brand has a pair of wintertime concoctions that will pair well with the festivities to come.

Barefoot Wine’s Bubbly collection offers a wide array of styles ranging from dry to sweet dessert styles, all with the effervescence you need to get the parties started. As the official champagne for the annual Times Square New Year’s Eve event, you can safely celebrate in style at home with a bottle that will cost less than ten bucks. We had the good fortune of trying out the Brut Cuvee, and it leans to the dry side.

Barefoot has constructed a cocktail, the Barefoot Bubbly Winter Warmer, which consists of the Brut Cuvee, which dances in harmony with bold Blue Curacao and bright grenadine.
