3 tablespoons black cherry liqueur
1 tablespoon brandy

Combine black cherry liqueur, brandy, and crushed ice in a cocktail shaker. Cover with lid, and shake vigorously until thoroughly chilled (about 30 seconds). Strain into a Champagne flute, and top with sparkling white wine. Garnish, if desired.

Note: We tested with Heering cherry liqueur and Riondo Prosecco Spago Nero.
