Kentucky Champagne Cup (Original Recipe)


This is a bourbon drink that is based on the Champagne Cocktail. Normally this would be enjoyed in a coup glass with no ice. But what if you want more champagne? 

Peaches are extremely important to this recipe for some reason. I'm going to say that it is because of summer weather and the desire to have fresh fruit with bubbles and bourbon. Anyway, for a simple solution to the persistent question, "what will I drink next?" This cocktail is an easy--no shaking--recipe you build in the glass.

  • 1 oz. bourbon (Evan Williams Bonded used)
  • 1/2 oz. peach whiskey (Bird Dog used)
  • several dashes aromatic bitters (Hella used)
  • champagne or sparkling wine (Wine Cube Bubbles used)
  • peach slice

Add bitters and whiskies to a large balloon wine goblet full of ice and stir to chill and combine. Fill with sparkling wine so that the ice floats and garnish with the peach slice.
