Happy Hour: Classic Champagne Cocktail


This afternoon we are celebrating the arrival of advice columnist E. Jean to the Sugar Network. DearSugar is girl after my own heart who loves any and every reason to celebrate. So today I'm playing bartender and whipping us up a round of classic Champagne cocktails. Different from a glass of champagne, the classic champagne cocktail (one that every hostess with the mostess should know how to make) incorporates a sugar cube, bitters and cognac. This is one sexy cocktail - if you have never tried it, you should because it oozes glamour. Celebrate with DearSugar and me,
