Popping Bottles: Ringing in the New Year, 2015
As the year comes to a close, we begin to look forward to the new year. What better way to toast to 2015 and ring in the new year than with a Classic Champagne Cocktail? And really, who doesn't love to pop bottles on New Years Eve? Whether hosting your own New Year's party or getting ready for a night out with friends, you will be sure to impress with this bubbly favorite:
Classic Champagne Cocktail
1 Sugar Cube
3-6 Dashes of Angostura bitters
4-6 Ounces of Brut Champagne
Lemon Twist (garnish)
Soak the sugar cube with bitters. Place the Champagne in a flute. Slowly pour the Champagne into the glass until it is within an inch of the rim. Add lemon twist as a garnish.
Pro Tip: 'Dodge the cork' should not be one of your next party games. Let's be honest, uncorking Champagne can be difficult. Stubborn corks, spills, and the always nerve-wracking 'flying' cork are some real problems when opening a bottle of Champagne. Stop the struggle with the Rabbit Velvet Champagne Set – not only will you and all of your friends be able to open Champagne like a pro with the Rabbit Champagne Pliers, you will look good doing it too. Added bonus: if you do by chance have leftover Champagne after the festivities have ended – don't throw it away! Keep it fresh and bubbly using the Rabbit Champagne Sealer (included in the set).
