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.
