Classic Champagne Cocktail

Today I’m showing y’all how to make a Classic Champagne Cocktail. It’s seriously so easy, but one of those easy recipes that will still impress your friends. Based on what I’ve read about this particular recipe, it’s one of the oldest cocktails ever, with recipes dating back to the 1870’s. It’s simple, it’s stood the test of time, and it’s delicious. Here’s how you make it.

Next, take a veggie peeler and peel off a bit of lemon zest for garnish. It will also give you a great citrusy smell with every sip, which is just lovely.
