Whether or not you’re celebrating the new year, you can’t beat a classic Champagne cocktail. Dress it up with fancy bitters or keep it simple with a citrus twist — this boozy beverage will have all your guests convinced that you just came from bartending class. All you need are a few simple and fun ingredients and you’ll be set to pop bottles all night.
- 1 bottle of your favorite Champagne (rosé works too!)
- 1 bottle of your favorite bitters
- sugar cubes
- citrus peels or zest
1. First, start off by dropping one sugar cube in an empty Champagne glass.
2. Cover the sugar cube with three hearty splashes of the bitters.
3. Pour Champagne.
4. Top with a citrus twist.
Easy as 1, 2, 3.
Don’t forget to top it off!
Depending on your bitters, raspberries and blackberries are also a good add-in.
The bubblier, the better!
The sugar cube sweetens it lightly, and the lemon adds a nice, refreshing touch.
