Ideal Wine: How to Make a Classic Champagne Cocktail

If you’re about to throw a dinner party for your friends, you’ll want to stick around. The Ideal Wine Company is about to tell you how to make a classic Champagne cocktail.

The perfect dinner party drink

Dinner parties are sophisticated occasions. They present you with a unique opportunity to go all out and really impress your nearest and dearest. You can show them what you’re made of the minute they step through the door by greeting them with cocktails. These heady concoctions give your guests a chance to mingle and catch up on local gossip before you serve the main course.

This is why it’s vital you find the perfect cocktail to start the night off right. May we suggest the classic Champagne cocktail? This timeless concoction is simple yet elegant; the perfect drink for special occasions.

What you’ll need

You won’t need to stretch your budget too far to create a mouth-watering classic Champagne cocktail. You’ll need one sugar cube, 2 dashes of bitters, 20 ml of Cognac (we suggest the Remy Martin XO Champagne Cognac) and enough luxury Champagne to top up a glass (the Dom Perignon 2000 would work fabulously for this).

The preparation method

You’ll also be glad to hear that the classic Champagne cocktail is incredibly easy to make. You can whip up a batch in a few minutes. All you have to do is:

  • Place the sugar cube on the spoon and soak it in the bitters.
  • Drop the cube into a Champagne flute and pour in the Cognac.
  • Top up the glass with your luxury Champagne.

Since we’re heading into summer, if you’re thinking of making a classic Champagne cocktail in the near future we suggest you do one more thing. Place a slice of lemon or lime on the rim of the glass to lend your creation an exotic Mediterranean vibe.

Wow your guests

Follow this guide and voila! You’ll have created a mouth-watering batch of classic Champagne cocktails that your guests are sure to love. These fabulous creations will turn your dinner party into the stuff of legend!
