white sugar, grated orange and lemon zest, to garnish
The addition of sparkling wine transforms this classic cocktail into an anytime celebration.
Dampen the rim of a vintage-style champagne glass by dipping in a bowl of water. Invert glass onto a plate containing sugar, and grated orange and lemon zest. Twist glass until enough sticks to the edges.
In a cocktail shaker, combine brandy, Cointreau and lemon juice with ice and shake well.
Strain into your sugared champagne glass and top with sparkling wine. Sprinkle citrus zest onto the drink for extra garnish if liked.
