A Champagne Cocktail for Ringing in the New Year

There’s no better way to ring in the new year than with a toast over a flute of bubbly, but this year you can surprise your guests by adding a little twist!

With no shortage of wine farms around the country producing great MCC’s, the classic Champagne Cocktail is the perfect way to start the year off on the right foot and all it requires is two additional ingredients – a sugar cube and Angostura aromatic bitters.

To make the Champagne Cocktail drop a sugar cube into a champagne flute and saturate with Angostura aromatic bitters. Then top up the glass with bubbles and garnish with lemon peel… it’s that easy.

You don’t want to welcome in the new year without some form of bubbly in hand, do you?
