Cocktail Hour: Classic champagne cocktail

We were asked on our Facebook page if we could write a cocktail recipe that had champagne or brandy in it. Well, I can go one better than that and give you a cocktail with both! The champagne cocktail is a classic and if you bubbly is too girly for you, this is a sophisticated way to drink it. Of course, the banging champagne headache you'll get the next day isn't so sophisticated.

You'll need these things:
  • Champagne
  • Half a shot of Cognac.
  • Angostura bitters
  • Sugar cube
And you need to do these things:

Put a sugar cube into the cocktail glass. Add a shot of bitters and the Cognac. Then top up with champagne. Add a twist of lemon and garnish with orange.

We are not responsible for your headache the next day. No.

  1. This is such a classic and definitely worth the headache! I've been telling people on my blog how good your cocktail recipes are!

  2. These are my favourite cocktails ever! And now you can get plastic champagne flutes for picnics, they even travel well (especially as you don't need ice)

  3. Seems like someone imbibed in a cocktail or two before writing this article ;-)

  4. Oooh you're not wrong - we didn't proof read that at all, did we?!
