Cocktail of the Week: The Classic Champagne Cocktail


Champagne Cocktail
Just in time for your holiday toasts, this bubbly classic is a simple but impressive glass to serve your guests.

Champagne (approximately 4oz per cocktail)
½ oz Cognac
Sugar Cubes
Angostura Bitters
Lemon Twists for garnish

Drip Angostura Bitters onto a Sugar Cube until it has completely changed color. Drop the saturated Sugar Cube into the bottom of a Champagne flute. Add Cognac and a Lemon Twist and fill the glass with Champagne.

Using Orange or Grapefruit twists adds a different citrus twist to this classic cocktail. Of course you can substitute sparkling wine if you please.

While you can prepare the Bitters soaked Sugar Cubes in advance, make these drinks to order so your guests can enjoy the mixture of flavors as the cube dissolves.
