Fun fact: The earliest known New Year celebrations were in Mesopotamia and date back to 2000 BC. I think it’s pretty safe to say that they weren’t toasting the New Year with a glass of champagne, and I think it’s also safe to say that they were totally missing out. Thankfully, people these days are pretty damn creative and there are tons of different options to kick off 2018. Don’t limit yourself to just filling a glass with bubbly to ring in the new year – mix it up with this collection of cocktails, donuts, cupcakes and more!
