The Classic Champagne Cocktail With A Citrus Twist [Recipe]

New Years Eve is tomorrow, which means it’s time to pop the cork and treat ourselves to one of the most festive cocktails around: the Champagne cocktail.

Champagne is among my favorite things to indulge in during the holidays, and while I can definitely enjoy it on its own, I really love it when it’s used as the base of a cocktail. The traditional Champagne cocktail is pretty basic, so I decided to give it a twist by adding a bit of citrus.

The reason I chose to add citrus to this beautiful classic is because it pairs perfectly with the effervescent qualities of the champagne. The classic Champagne cocktail consists of a sugar cube doused in angostura bitters and topped with Champagne, so by substituting citrus bitters along with fresh citrus, the cocktail becomes even more celebratory than the original.

Recipe: Citrus Champagne Cocktail

Ingredients

  • 1 sugar cube
  • 1 dash of citrus bitters
  • ½ ounce of lime juice
  • ½ ounce of orange juice
  • top with Champagne

Instructions:
In a champagne flute or coupe drop in 1 citrus cube and add a dash of citrus bitters right on top of the cube. Pour in the lime juice and orange juice and allow the sugar to dissolve a bit. Then top with Champagne.

Yields: 1 serving
