Prepare a Sparkling Pink Drink for Your Summer Cocktail

Happy weekend and welcome back to Happy 3 Ingredient Hour , a weekly drinks column featuring very simple yet delicious libations. This week we are making a pink drink inspired almost painfully by the classic Champagne cocktail.

A champagne cocktail is so simple that I wouldn’t even dare call it a “cocktail”. A sugar cube soaked in Angostura bitters and topped with chilled dry champagne is so easy to make it almost looks like a hoax, but the resulting drink is surprisingly aromatic and very delicious. (Plus, it looks very pretty.) To make it even prettier and a little more summery, I used sparkling rosé instead of champagne and replaced the Angostura bitter with an orange. To do it yourself, you will need:

  • 1 sugar cube
  • 4-5 drops of orange bitter
  • Pink dry sparkling

Place the sugar cube in the base of the champagne glass and saturate the sucrose with a bitter. Carefully pour the sparkling wine over the edge of the flute and sip in the most refined way.
