This champagne cocktail is inspired by ri(1) rye whiskey, which I used in this recipe. It has a light flavor without being too sweet or too weak, which is the downfall of some champagne cocktails.
- 1 oz rye whiskey
- ½ oz red grapefruit juice
- ½ oz simple syrup
- Sparkling wine
Pour the rye, grapefruit juice and simple syrup into a chilled champagne flute. Then pour in chilled sparkling wine.
