The Ultimate Champagne Cocktail

The Champagne Cocktail is just about as money as it gets. Let’s take champagne — delicious and expensive champagne — and then while you’ve got credit card out we’ll charge it with some cognac.

The truth is the balance in this recipe can be difficult to get right; some champagne can be quite delicate in flavour, and cognac is no shriking violet.

You may even want to ditch the cognac altogether, but then if you’re going to do that you’re best off spending a little extra on killer champagne and doing away with all the cocktailing frippery.


30ml H by Hine VSOP Cognac
1 sugar cube
3-4 Angostura aromatic bitters
Champagne to top


Soak the sugar cube with the bitters and drop into the flute. Add cognac, then top with champagne. Garnish with a lemon twist.
