Champagne is best served like wine — on its own, in a glass, right? We beg to differ. Champagne and sparkling wine is great, but it's even better in a cocktail. Here are a couple of our favourite ways to improve that glass of bubbly.
1/2 oz Aperol 1 sugar cube 2 dashes peychauds bitters 4 oz sparkling wine
Add all ingredients to flute and garnish with lemon twist.
1 oz Bombay Sapphire gin 3/4 oz lemon juice 1/2 oz simple syrup 2 oz champagne
Add gin, lemon juice and simple syrup to shaker. Shake, strain into martini glass, top with 2oz of champagne and garnish with a lemon twist.
1oz Bombay Sapphire gin 1/2 oz Cointreau 1/2 oz Chartreuse 1/2 oz lemon juice 2 oz champagne Pernod Egg white
- Add gin, cointreau, chartreuse and lemon juice to shaker. Shake, strain into flute.
- Top with champagne, and Pernod egg white foam.
Pernod egg white foam = equal parts egg white and Pernod; whip until becomes foam
