Champagne Cocktail

Champagne

“Too much of anything is bad, but too much Champagne is just right.” – F.Scott Fitzgerald

The holiday season is upon us so today I am going to share a quick and easy recipe for a champagne cocktail. There is something memorable about being a guest who is greeted with a glass of champagne, or a champagne cocktail upon arrival to a party. It has a way of setting the tone for the light hearted buzzy fun that awaits.

Champagne Cocktail

Place a sugar cube* in a chilled champagne flute, lash it with 2 or 3 dashes of bitters (Angostura or Peychaud’s), fill the glass with brut champagne, and squeeze a lemon twist on top.  -from Esquire Magazine

“Champagne: In victory, I deserve it. In defeat, I need it.”  -Winston Churchill
