Hey Dolls! Sometimes you don’t need a mixed cocktail; just a most-fabulous glass of bubbly – undisturbed. Town & Country recently published its list of Champagne Bottles to Try; with UK blog, Country & Townhouse, sharing its list of the 10 Best-Selling Champagne Brands in the World. Does your favorite make the list? In my quest for the perfect grape, I also stumbled upon a great article on how best to choose a champagne. Peep the deets here.
But in keeping with tradition, I am still bringing you the option of a champagne cocktail. This week’s recipe is compliments of Food + Wine. I admit to not yet having tried it, but was intrigued by the ingredients and the rimmed glass. I invite you to trying it with me and leave a comment with your thoughts. I will update my post with a my thoughts when I make it this week. Peep the mixology below.
The Ingredients |
- 3 maraschino cherries, plus 3/4 ounce syrup from the jar
- superfine sugar
- 3 dashes of Angostura Bitters
- 2 brown sugar cubes
- 1/2 ounce Cherry Heering or cherry liqueur
- 4 ounces chilled champagne
The Mixology | Moisten the outer rim of the flute with 1/2 ounce maraschino cherry syrup and coat with superfine sugar. Sprinkle the bitters over the sugar cubes. Add the Cherry Heering, maraschino cherries and the remaining 1/4 ounce of maraschino cherry syrup to the flute. Top with champagne and add the sugar cubes. Serve, sip + enjoy!
Until then, keep sharing the pretty,
