With the end of the school year approaching and the beginning of vacation season looming wonderfully close, there are many things to celebrate this weekend. Perhaps life is one of them (hey, sometimes we are glass-half-full kind of people) but if you can’t think of anything, at least praise the fact that a warm, sunset-tainted evening at the beach may very soon be near. Celebrate that dream with this weekend’s libation, the simply-titled Champagne Cocktail, courteous of our favorite new cocktail-recipe haunt – what else? – Pinterest.
- 1 sugar cube or 1/2 teaspoon sugar
- 6 dashes bitters
- .5 oz brandy
- .5 cup Champagne, chilled
- Maraschino cherry
- Lemon slice
Place sugar in a champagne flute or cocktail glass; sprinkle with bitters. Pour brandy into the glass. Top with Champagne. Garnish as desired.
