The bitters and brandy bring a refreshing warmth to the bubbly. Choose a good Champagne for this drink because it contributes the majority of the flavor and the better tasting Champagne, the better the cocktail will be. For this and all Champagne cocktails, add the Champagne last, right before serving for the best results and the best looking dissolving sugar cube effect.
- 1 sugar cube
- 2-3 dashes Angostura bitters
- 1 oz brandy
- orange slice for garnish
- maraschino cherry for garnish
Place the sugar cube in the bottom of a Champagne flute. Use the dashes of Angostura bitters to saturate the sugar cube. Add the brandy.
Fill with Champagne. Garnish with the orange slice and cherry.
