Pink Champagne vs. White Champagne

I thought champagne only came in one color – white. But apparently there is such a thing as pink champagne, more commonly known as Rosé Champagne.

Pink champagne can have a different flavor than white champagne, but like any bubbly, flavor varies depending on the maker and the grapes. The unique color is derived from the way it is made. It is also a bit more expensive than white champagne.

Specifically for this champagne cupcakes recipe, you want a sweeter, fruity pink champagne, and not a nutty or musty white champagne.
