How to make a Champagne Classic cocktail

Your rating: None Average: 5 (1 vote)
The champagne classic is debated to be the first ever cocktail (it's between this and the Sazerac). The first recording of this drink was in 1889 where it was entered into a New York cocktail competition. The person who entered it said he had discovered the cocktail 25 years before. It won.
What you'll need: 
1 white sugar cube
Angostura bitters
25ml cognac
Champagne flute
Place the sugar cube on the napkin.
Add 3-4 drops of angosturas bitters to the sugar cube and allow to soak in.
Carefully place the sugar cube in the bottom of the champage flute.
Add the cognac to the glass.
Top with champagne.
