You don’t always need an occasion to drink something elegant. Just celebrate life for once. Personally, I love champagne and whatever you can make with champagne, so this cocktail is right up my alley, and I will have at least one while watching Scandal on my DVR later on. Seems appropriate. Enjoy this fancy cocktail!



What you’ll need:

  • 1.25 oz Hennessy (or quality cognac of your choice)
  • 0.25 oz simple syrup
  • 0.25 oz fresh lemon juice
  • brut champagne
  • lemon peel for garnish

Combine Hennessy, simple syrup and lemon juice in a cocktail shaker over ice and shake well, Strain into a chilled champagne flute and top off with champagne. Garnish with a lemon peel.
