Champagne Cocktail - Classic

This is a classic recipe that can be track back to the 1850's. There is not much to it but I liked it as a variation of having just plain sparkling wine or champagne. In my case, I was just having mimosas but ran out of OJ so I decided to try it out. 

As it turns out is not half bad. I did not have the recommended lemon twist for garnish so I went without it. Next time I will try adding some cognac to increase the ABV.

With the help of a bar spoon soak the sugar cube in Angostura Bitters. Drop inside a champagne flute. Top off with 4-5 oz of champagne or sparkling wine. Garnish with a twist of lemon.
