The Classic Champagne Cocktail

Toast to the new year with a cool drink that has more to it than just your ordinary champagne. This drink is a classic all the way from the Metropolitan Hotel, New York City circa 1935. It sound so simple but so classy that I imagine you’d pop right back into New Years 1934 right when they toasted in 1935 with this cocktail.


– 1 cube sugar
– Angostura bitters
– Chilled champagne

Soak sugar cube with a couple of good splashes of Angostura bitters and place in the bottom of a large champagne flute.

Fill slowly with sparkling wine.

Garnish with a lemon twist.

Recipe found on Avalon Wine.
