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.]
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.
