Champagne with a Rosewater Kiss (this might be the world’s easiest Champagne cocktail)
If you’re still not sure what to serve for Valentine’s Day or, if you just need a quickie cocktail any time of the year, this is hands down the drink you need. And it has got to be the easiest Champagne cocktail to make. By adding just a trace of rose water, you’re emphasizing the Champagne’s aphrodisiac attributes while allowing the wine’s natural flavors to still shine.
The recipe comes from my cookbook Romancing the Stove: The Unabridged Guide to Aphrodisiac Foods. I came up with the drink I call the easiest Champagne cocktail ever because I wanted everyone to feel like they can make a cocktail, even if you don’t know how to cook. So forget hiring a bartender for your next party. Just pick up a bottle of rosewater, some great Champagne or Sparkling Wine and wow your guests with this elegant and aromatic drink.
- 2-4 drops rosewater
- 10 oz Brut-style Champagne or sparkling wine Cava works exceptionally well
Place 1-2 drops of rose water into each of two Champagne flutes. (Use an eye dropper to ensure the right amount.)
Top each with 5 oz of Champagne or sparkling wine.
