The Classic Champagne Cocktail
18th July 2015
This simple and classic cocktail is perfect for special occasions and guaranteed to go down a treat.
A similar recipe for this cocktail appears as early as “Professor” Jerry Thomas’ Bon Vivant’s Companion in 1862 and has been seen several times in works of fiction, including Casablanca (1924).
1 white sugar cube
3 dashes of angostura bitters
Around 100ml Champagne, or enough to fill the glass
1. Put the sugar cube in the glass and add the 3 drops of bitters over it.
2. Add the cognac.
3. Gently top up with Champagne, and serve. Feel free to add a strawberry, cherry or orange peel for a little extra colour and style.
