The Classic Champagne Cocktail

Referred to all over the world as the classic champagne cocktail recipe, thought to have first originated from the winner of a New York Cocktail competition in 1899.

It sounds like a bizarre combination of ingredients – but you’ll be surprised by the result. Drip 4 dashes of Bitters  (Angostura Bitters) on a sugar cube and place in the bottom of a champagne flute. Cover the cube with cognac or old brandy  – then top up with champagne.

Perhaps what seems most strange is that as you drink it the flavour changes from dry to sweet.


4 Drops of Bitters

0.75 Measure(25ml) of Cognac or Old Brandy

Champagne – or Sparkling Wine

1 cube of sugar
