New Year’s Eve 2011: Scotch Royale

A variation on the traditional Champagne Cocktail (just champagne, sugar, and bitters), the addition of scotch makes this a little stronger and an excellent New Year’s tipple for whisky fans. This is the second installment of our three day series of champagne-based cocktails leading up to New Year’s Eve. Yesterday we posted the classic French 75, and check back tomorrow for the Nomayo.

1 1/2 oz scotch whisky

1 cube sugar

3-4 dashes aromatic bitters

top with champagne

Drop the sugar cube into the bottom of your champagne flute or coupe and add bitters, then scotch. Top with champagne.
