Top Review by Kasha

I wanted a classic champagne cocktail and this is it. I disagree that good champagne is wasted in this, it makes the whole thing better. Don't overdo the bitters and half a tsp is about the right amount of sugar if you don't have cubes. Very adult, very nice.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 drops Angostura bitters
  • 1 sugar cube
  • 1 fluid ounce cognac, such as Remy Martin
  • champagne, enough to top up the glass


  1. Drip the Angostura bitters onto a sugar cube and place in the bottom of a champagne flute.
  2. Pour over the cognac and top up with champagne.
