Need a cocktail ASAP? This is perhaps the quickest one you can make!
Sometimes referred to as an “Emergency Cocktail” because of how fast it is to whip up, the Champagne Cocktail has its roots in the same category as the Old Fashioned. It is essentially an Old Fashioned in a different glass, with Champagne subbing for the whiskey. By the way, you can use whatever dry, sparkling wine you have on hand.
5-6 oz Champagne
1 Sugar Cube
3 Dashes Angostura Bitters
1 Lemon Peel
On a napkin, soak 1 sugar cube with bitters. Drop it in your favorite Flute Glass. Pour your bubbly on top and then express a peel of lemon over the top and drop in. Fast, right? 😉
