The best name, a personal family favorite and a perfect excuse to celebrate anything and everything. Found in ‘Bitters’, by Brad Thomas Parsons, this is a wonderful cocktail to make for a few friends because you’re opening a whole bottle of Champagne – enjoy!
For one drink;
3/4 oz. apple brandy – we love Laird’s Applejack Brandy
3/4 oz. St. Germain elderflower liqueur
1 dash Fee Brothers Whiskey Barrel-Aged Bitters
chilled dry Champagne (or sparkling wine)
grated fresh nutmeg to garnish – this is a must
Combine the apple brandy, elderflower liqueur and bitters in a mixing glass filled with and stir several times until chilled. Strain into a coupe glass, top off with chilled Champagne and garnish with a good grating of fresh nutmeg. Prepare to make several more.
