Bubbles, Bubbles Everywhere

OK, so this post isn’t about martinis, but it is about my next favorite drink at the moment: champagne. Just last week I attended a champagne tasting at Country at The Carlton hotel in New York. This is fast becoming one of my favorite restaurants in the city — I love lighting and decor. The best part? The champagne lounge on the second level. Here’s one of their signature sips:

The International Cocktail
1/4 oz. Hennessy VSOP
1/8 oz. Luxardo Maraschino liqueur
Angostura Bitters-soaked sugar cube
Orange zest

Rinse champagne flute with Hennessey, then disregard the rest. Add a bitters soaked sugar cube to the glass followed by Luxardo Maraschino liqueur. Top with Prosecco. Garnish with orange zest.
