Friday Cocktail Hour; West Coast Champagne by Shaun the Bartender
I love a great dinner party and planning one is an exhilarating adventure. I am always on the look out for a new cocktail for my guests to sip and Shaun the Bartender has my pick for this week.
With an intoxicating combination of raspberry liqueur with the orange flavored brandy, this is sure to please a crowd.
- 1/2 oz. Grand Marnier
- 1/2 oz. Chambord
- Champagne or Sparkling Wine
- Twist of Orange
Method: In a Champagne flute, pour in the measured amounts of the liqueurs. Top off with sparkling wine of Champagne. Take an orange rind and twist it over the glass, then rub the rind on the rim before dropping it into the drink.
This is the last of the seven cocktails I created for the 2013 Los Angeles International Spirits Expo, and a perfect one to conclude on. A champagne based cocktail, this one will tickle every taste bud as you savor its flavor. The combination of raspberry liqueur with the orange flavored brandy is the perfect mix that seems to complement the bubbly well. -Shaun Daugherty
