Anyone who knows me knows I'll use any excuse to pop a bottle of champagne. This vintage-inspired concoction has become my go to beverage for just such an occasion and it's (almost) as much fun to make as it is to consume. I was super excited when Crystal of Wabi Sabi asked if I wanted to add a special drink to her cocktail series (1,2,3,4) and of course, this was it! Not too sweet, and just enough bubbles to make your head spin (in a good way).
What you need...
1 sugar cube
a few dashes of aromatic cocktail bitters
fresh raspberries & blackberries
(my very, very, very favorite champagne is Francis Ford Coppola's Sofia Blanc de Blancs)
Place the sugar cube in a champagne flute
Add a few dashes of the cocktail bitters (the more you add, the prettier the pink color will be)
Pour champagne and add the fresh berries
Hope you love it as much as I do!
