The champagne cocktail—simple, yet elegant. A delightful special occasion drink.

Why Try? Makes a special drink even more special.

Foodie Byte: • A lemon twist is the traditional garnish. • A brut sparkling wine may be substituted for the Champagne, and brandy may be substituted for the cognac. • Do not chill the glasses prior to serving. Part of the allure of Champagne is the bubbles, and the condensation on the outside of a chilled glass clouds the view.

Preparation

  1. Coat sugar cube with 3 dashes Angostura bitters. Place sugar cube in bottom of champagne flute.
  2. Pour an ounce of Champagne over the sugar cube; wait for most of the bubbles to subside. Continue to fill the flute with Champagne until glass is almost full.
  3. Top with a splash of cognac.
