At least something sparkly/bubbly. It is the standard image, if you look up new years eve you get images/cards of clinging champagne glasses just like when you look up birthday you get balloons and cake. Though not everyone might use/have those at birthdays.
Btw we didnt actually drink champagne, but did always toast with something in a nice glass. But on bigger gatherings there usually is atleast one bottle so everyone can get a sip and if not then there is prosecco or cava. It is the thought that count. Toasting on the stroke of midnight.
Plus I didnt get root beer or ginger ale, I háve heard of those, but to this day I still don't know what it is. I think I tried to look it up once, but that obviously didnt help.
And missed orange juice... I have no idea about the ingredients of those.. I was trying several types of liquor..
