Seelbach Cocktail

Kentucky is home to the world's finest bourbons, and, as such, is naturally the source of inspiration for many of the most beloved whiskey-based cocktails. Named after the famous hotel in Louisville, this classic cocktail remains as popular today as it was back in the early twentieth century. The Seelbach fortifies a backbone of bourbon with a touch of Cointreau, two types of bitters, and a splash of sparkling wine for a sophisticated sipper that will transport you to a more genteel time and place.

Serves 1:

- 2 ounces bourbon
- 1/2 ounce Cointreau
- 7 dashes of Angostura bitters
- 7 dashes of Peychaud's bitters
- Ice cubes
- 4 to 5 ounces Champagne or other sparkling wine

Tools: mixing glass, barspoon, strainer
Glass: flute
Garnish: lemon twist

Combine the bourbon, Cointreau, and Angostura and Peychaud's bitters in an ice-filled mixing glass and stir until chilled. Strain into a flute. Top with the Champagne and garnish with the lemon twist.
