3-5 dashes Jack Rudy Aromatic Bitters
Champagne or sparkling wine
Lemon twist and edible flowers for garnish
Sprinkle sugar into bottom of coupe. Add 3-5 dashes of bitters to soak sugar. Top with Champagne and garnish with a lemon twist.
DID YOU KNOW?
Redbud blossoms are edible! The purple flowers are high in vitamin C and have a mild flavor. For a gorgeous garnish, sprinkle on salads and spring cocktails.
MAKE A LEMON PEEL TWIST
With just a bit of practice, you’ll be twisting like a pro. Follow these tips from Amanda, our found + expert twister for the perfect garnish.
1. Use a channel knife or peeler to slowly cut a strip of peel 2-3 inches long. If using a peeler, you can trim into a thin strip with a knife.
2. Twist into a tight curl and give it a gentle squeeze.
3. Drape on the edge of the glass.
