Valentine’s Day is typically celebrated with a bottle of champagne or sparkling wine. This year, why not try introducing a spark to the special day? No, not that kind of spark! Simply switch things up a little by using your usual bottle of bubbly as part of this Rosé Champagne Cocktail.
This recipe uses half a sugar cube for a drier effect. If you prefer things on the sweeter side, or you’re looking to enjoy this cocktail with dessert, feel free to use one whole sugar cube per drink.
This drink looks pretty fancy on it’s own, but if you like, you can dress it up with a lemon twist garnish.
- 1 sugar cube
- 8 dashes of Angostura or other aromatic bitters
- Chilled rosé Champagne
- Cut the sugar cube in half using a serrated knife or a sharp, thin knife. You will lose some sugar granules during cutting but that is okay.
- Place one half of the sugar cube on the bottom of each champagne flute.
- Add 4 dashes of bitters over each sugar cube.
- Fill the glasses with Champagne.
