There are numerous champagne-based cocktails, but one of the most iconic and well-loved is the Classic Champagne Cocktail.
This sophisticated and timeless drink has been a favorite for centuries and is known for its elegant presentation and delightful flavors.
Here's the recipe for a Classic Champagne Cocktail:
- 1 sugar cube
- 2-3 dashes Angostura bitters
- Chilled Champagne or sparkling wine
- Lemon twist or a maraschino cherry for garnish (optional)
- Place the sugar cube in the bottom of a champagne flute.
- Add 2-3 dashes of Angostura bitters onto the sugar cube.
- Slowly pour the chilled Champagne or sparkling wine into the glass, allowing it to gently dissolve the sugar cube and create a lovely cascade of bubbles.
- Garnish with a lemon twist or maraschino cherry, if desired, and serve immediately.
While the Classic Champagne Cocktail is a popular choice, there are many other delightful champagne-based cocktails to explore, such as the French 75, Bellini, or Kir Royale, depending on your personal preferences.
