The Seelbach Cocktail

I featured this drink in a recent episode of Quarantine Cooking. 

Some days were made for cocktailing [they end in ‘y’].

There’s a cocktail for every occasion. But what about the “I’m in a mimosa mood but have no oranges” occasion?

Easy, the Seelbach.

It’s perfect for that cheap bottle of sparkling wine you’ve got in your fridge from that time you had the [insert cheap friends’ last name] over and they brought Andre. Why are you still friends?

Which is exactly what happened to me. [That’s a lie; I have no friends.]


Makes 1 Cocktail

  • 1 oz bourbon

  • 1/2 oz Cointreau or triple sec

  • 7 dashes Angostura bitters [I used Bob’s Abbott bitters.]

  • 7 dashes Peychaud’s bitters [it’s the red one…]

  • 4-5oz sparkling wine


Add bourbon, Cointreau, and both bitters to a mixing glass filled with ice. Stir to chill. Strain into a Champagne flute and top with sparkling wine. Feel real fancy.
