Though Jake and I always ring in the new year with our boys, we did leave them for a couple of hours last night to stop by our friends' New Year's Eve bash. And I have a new favorite drink: a classic champagne cocktail. I have never had Angostura Bitters; now I'm dreaming up ways to use it. The fragrance is deliciously unique.
3 drops bitters
1 sugar cube
4 ounces chilled Champagne
Drop bitters onto sugar cube; let soak in. Place sugar cube in a champagne flute and top with champagne. Cheers and happy new year!
