1 Bottle of Quality Champagne 

6 Sugar cubes

6 Strips of Orange zest

Orange bitters

DIRECTIONS

1. Place one sugar cube in each glass. Add a couple of dashes of the orange bitters.

NOTES: Champagne cocktails are classically prepared with Angostura bitters and a twist of lemon. Recently, I found Orange Angostura bitters (how exciting!) and made this classic drink using the orange bitters and an orange peel twist! It was just a nice twist on this classic drink. A classic with a twist!!!

Have you noticed that stem less champagne glasses have taken Instagram by storm? So did I. I found these flutes at Amazon.com and they really are a nice addition to my cocktail glass collection.
