Bourbon & Bubbly Cocktail Recipe

BOURBON AND BUBBLY

SERVES 8

Bourbon-Bubbly

Bourbon with the effervescent touch of sparkling wine is a combination that tickles your mouth as you drink it and can tickle your brain later on. This is a takeoff on the signature cocktail from Louisville’s famed Seelbach Hilton, and it’s wonderful to serve to a crowd. Try this as an apéritif before your Thanksgiving meal. I can almost guarantee no familial fighting.

Ingredients:

  • 4 OUNCES BOURBON
  • 4 TABLESPOONS SUGAR
  • 1 TEASPOON ANGOSTURA BITTERS
  • ICE CUBES
  • EIGHT 2-INCH STRIPS LEMON PEEL (NO PITH)
  • ONE 750-MILLILITER BOTTLE VERY COLD, VERY DRY CHAMPAGNE OR SPARKLING WINE

Directions:

1. Mix the bourbon, sugar, and bitters in a glass measuring cup. Let stand until the sugar begins to dissolve, stirring occasionally. This will take 10 to 15 minutes (you can make this 4 or more hours ahead, if you wish).

2. Add ice cubes to 8 small wine glasses. Twist a piece of lemon peel over each glass, and drop in. Divide the bourbon mixture among the wine glasses, and then fill the glasses with Champagne. Serve immediately.
