Champagne Cocktail

When ushering in the New Year, don’t just pour your fellow revelers some champagne— pour them a Champagne Cocktail. A few simple additions turn the already celebratory bubbly into something even more festive. It’s been around forever, having appeared in the oldest known book of cocktail recipes, Jerry Thomas’ “How to Mix Drinks,” and the recipe has remained consistent through the years. Just make sure you have some sugar cubes, lemons and Angostura bitters on hand, and the mixing of the cocktails takes no time at all.

Place a sugar cube in the bottom of a champagne glass with a small lump of ice. Add a dash or two of bitters onto the sugar and slowly fill the glass with champagne, stirring only enough to dissolve the sugar. Serve with a twist of lemon peel.
