- 3 tablespoons brandy
- 1 tablespoon orange liqueur
- Crushed ice cubes
- 1 lemon wedge
- 1 small lemon rind twist
- 1/2 cup Champagne or sparkling wine
How to Make It
Combine first 3 ingredients in a cocktail shaker or martini shaker. Cover with lid, and shake 30 seconds or until thoroughly chilled. Remove lid, and strain into a martini glass. Squeeze juice from lemon wedge into glass; rub lemon rind twist around rim, and drop into glass. Add Champagne to brandy mixture, and serve immediately.
Note: For testing purposes only, we used Cognac for brandy and Cointreau for orange liqueur.
