  • 2 sugar cubes

  • 1 ounce Cointreau
  • 1 ounce Cognac
  • 8 ounces Champagne or sparkling wine

Step 2Place a sugar cube on top of the opened bottle of bitters. Turn the bottle over to saturate the cube, then place the soaked cube in the bottom of a Champagne flute. Repeat with the second sugar cube, placing it in the other glass.

Step 3Add one-half ounce Cointreau and one-half ounce Cognac to each glass. Swirl to mix. Fill each glass with Champagne. Garnish each with an orange spiral.
