Holiday Champagne Cocktail
Inspired by the Champagne Cocktail, this effervescent tipple is crisp and delightful. Made with apple brandy (buy Calavados if you’re feeling fancy) and a demerara sugar cube soaked with Nocino (an ancient italian liqueur made from green walnuts), it has a fruit-forward richness. Decadently garnished with a bright red fresh cranberry, this festive cocktail is the perfect way to kick off any holiday get-together.
- 0.5 oz apple brandy
- 2 dashes Nocino
- Demerara Sugar Cube
- Champagne, to top
Add a demerara sugar cube to a Champagne flute.
Dash the Nocino onto the sugar cube and add the brandy.
Top with Champagne and add a fresh cranberry for garnish.
