#DOTW: Champagne Bowler

This is a good one, folks. Elegant, yet refreshing, we will drink like royalty during these last days of summer: I you like cognac, white wine or champagne, then this is the cocktail for you, because it’s all in there! Add a little sweetness and some fruit, and you will have the King of cocktails (or Queen, whatever floats your strawberry).

What you’ll need:

  • 1/2 oz Remy 1738 (or quality cognac of your choice)
  • 1 oz Santa Margarita (or quality white wine of your choice}
  • Moët Champagne (or quality champagne/sparkling wine of your choice)
  • 1/2 simple syrup
  • fresh strawberries

In a cocktail shaker add one large or two small strawberries together with the simple syrup, muddle well. Add ice and shake well. Pour ingredients into a Martini glass or wine goblet, then add the cognac and white wine. Top off with champagne and add more sliced strawberries.

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
