Let’s continue with the champagne theme, why don’t we? Last week, I opened a bottle of sparkling wine to make a mimosa. With the “leftovers,” I decided to make a champagne cocktail.
This is one of my favorite cocktails because it is so simply delicious. As with a mimosa, start out with good, but not great, sparkling wine. I like to use blood orange bitters for a nice twist, but any old bitters will do in a pinch. Cheers!
1 sugar cube, or 1/2 tsp sugar
dash of blood orange (or other) bitters
Drop the sugar cube into the bottom of a champagne flute. Add a dash of bitters, and pour sparkling wine over to fill the glass.
