Which cocktail will you enjoy this New Year’s Eve?

Just the two of you

Champagne Cocktail

The classic Champagne Cocktail has been around for more than 150 years and is the perfect cocktail for a romantic New Year’s Eve for two. Substitute the traditional sugar lump for a teaspoon of mango or passion fruit sorbet to give this cocktail a fresh Indian Ocean twist.


1 sugar cube (or teaspoon of sorbet)
2-3 dashes Angostura Bitters
3cl brandy

Place the sugar cube at the bottom of a champagne flute, pour over the bitters so that the sugar soaks it up. Add the brandy. When you’re ready to serve pour over the champagne.
