Pineapple Champagne Cocktail

Oh, how I love champagne and the many delicious ways to enjoy it.  Champagne is such a celebratory drink and practically the only alcohol acceptable before noon.  One of my favorite ways to enjoy it is my Pineapple Champagne Cocktail.  Because champagne can be a little pricey and the bottle seems to go very fast, I came up with a way to stretch the adding pineapple juice and vodka!  The pineapple adds a little sweetness to compensate for the bitterness of the vodka and the sparkling, dry champagne adds the bubbles and the crispness.  It is a great drink to serve in the beginning of a party before your guests switch to wine or beer.  I serve it at almost all my parties and it is always a big hit.  Not too strong, not too sweet, just the perfect balance.  The best part?  It is only 3 ingredients and can be self served.  Just mix it all up in a pitcher and set on your table for guests to help themselves.  The holidays are fast approaching, which means family gatherings, which means drinks are mandatory.  Make this cocktail, you and your guests won't regret it!

What you need:
1 bottle of Champagne
2 cups of Pineapple Juice
1 cup of Vodka

Mix and serve over ice or in champagne flute.
