Serves: 1 cocktail
Ingredients
  • 2 oz bourbon
  • ½ oz fresh lemon juice
  • ¾ oz simple syrup*
  • 2 dashes Angostura Bitters
  • Chilled Champagne, Cava, or Prosecco
Instructions
  1. Pour bourbon, lemon juice, simple syrup, and bitters in a champagne glass or a similarly sized cocktail glass. Stir gently and top with Champagne, Cava, or Prosecco. (I used Prosecco) Garnish with a candied or fresh lemon slice.
Notes
*to make simple syrup, combine equal parts sugar and water in a small saucepan. Heat just until the sugar is dissolved and use for all of your cocktail needs. For this recipe, I actually used a brown sugar simple syrup which paired very nicely with the bourbon.
