The champagne cocktail—simple, yet elegant. A delightful special occasion drink.

Why Try? Makes a special drink even more special.

• A lemon twist is the traditional garnish. • A brut sparkling wine may be substituted for the Champagne, and brandy may be substituted for the cognac. • Do not chill the glasses prior to serving. Part of the allure of Champagne is the bubbles, and the condensation on the outside of a chilled glass clouds the view.


  • 4 to 5 ounces champagne
  • 1 sugar cube
  • 3 dashes bitters
  • Splash of cognac


  • 1 Coat sugar cube with 3 dashes Angostura bitters. Place sugar cube in bottom of champagne flute.
  • 2 Pour an ounce of Champagne over the sugar cube; wait for most of the bubbles to subside. Continue to fill the flute with Champagne until glass is almost full.
  • 3 Top with a splash of cognac.
