If a $5 bottle of Andre rosé won’t do the trick this year, ring in the new year with some Champagne cocktails. We’ll start off with the aptly named…
1 dash Angostura Bitters
Add sugar cube to Champagne coupe or flute and soak with Angostura bitters. Top with cold Champagne, and garnish with a lemon twist.
2 ounces gin
1 ounce lemon juice
1/2 ounce simple syrup
Shake gin, lemon juice and simple syrup with ice, and strain into a champagne coupe. Top with champagne, and garnish with a lemon peel.
Death in the Afternoon
1.5 ounces Absinthe
4 ounces dry Champagne
To make one of Hemingway’s favorites, simply add Absinthe to a Champagne flute, then top with cold Champagne.
