Champagne Cocktail Recipe

Begin with a champagne flute glass
On a cocktail napkin, place one cube of sugar and shake Angostura Bitters…
Soak this sugar cube completley.
Fill full of Champagne or Sparkling Wine
Add (Drop in) this Soaked Sugar Cube (Don’t try this with a packet of sugar, it wont work correctly)
Garnish with a fresh peel of Lemon

This is one of the earliest examples of cocktail creationism. I can imagine Monk Perignon would have thrown in a couple berries himself at some point…. Anyway… sparkling wine makes a wonderful elixir to add to any kind of flavor or juice that you like. In this case… an Angostura bitters soaked cube of sugar and a lemon twist will jazz up this drink to make it a delight. Feel free to try different flavored bitters or different sugars. In any case, a ‘packet’ of sugar will not work. It makes the cocktail foam over.
Trust me… I’ve tried it many times. Cheers!
