what is a good quality but inexpensive champagne?!
.....Suggestions Priced from $10-30:.....
Mumm Napa Brut Rosé $24
Segura Viudas $12
Korbel Champagne Brut $12
Beringer Sparkling White Zinfandel $10
Jacob's Creek Sparkling Rosé $12
Chandon Extra Dry Riche $12

Grab some Mionetto or Zardetto prosecco. They're easy to find, fine for mixing and <$10.
Or, if you can find it, Gruet, from New Mexico of all places, makes great Champagne-style sparkling wine for around $15. I love, love their Rosé, but for cocktails, you may want to stick with the standard Brut.
I'm a sommelier.
Korbel is a great brand. It's about $13 per bottle. It is not Moet but it is a very good low priced brand.
Brute (sp) hubby & i had it on our honeymoon cruise it wasnt real dry or sweet should be good the way your gonna use it
