The Champagne Cocktail is one of those drinks you fall in love with at first sip.

The recipe of this historic cocktail is simple, but of an addictive simplicity: you put a sugar cube in a champagne flute, drop two drops of Angostura, add a Cognac shot and then fill with a fall of Champagne.

Observing bubbles slowly fill the glass and exploding in a foam full of hypnotic perfumes is a ritual that never ceases to amaze.

If Champagne alone is lovely nectar, by adding a sweet touch, a bitter one and the warmth of Cognac, it becomes a small masterpiece. What is lost in finesse and varietal purity is gained in pleasantness.

Cocktail etiquette

The Cocktail Champagne is ideal for brunches, cocktails parties, and great events; for the perfect success of the drink, prepare it in bowls, adjusting the proportions of the ingredients and putting inside abundant orange slices.
