For champagne lovers this is a nice change from a Mimosa or Poinsetta. Adding a twist of lemon or orange adds a different take on this traditional classic cocktail that is beloved by all. Read More

This is a pretty good cocktail. Nothing fantastic in my book. There was a sweetness there that I did enjoy. Read More

I drink these all the time and love them. One rater recommended a lemon twist--this is a great addition; however try an orange twist instead--gives an entirely different taste. Yum! Read More

Very good. This was my first time using bitters and I really loved how this seemed to mellow out my champagne. As a matter of fact some of my memory is a little blurry......:) Read More

I used to drink this all the time....thanks for reminding me how good it is. Do not be tempted to use cheap champagne. You are more likely to like this cocktail when using a champagne that you enjoy by itself. Read More
