In a similar vein to the French 75, but with brandy in place of the gin, this drink is simpler and marginally less dangerous. I’ve no idea what Diana Dors drank, but for some reason this reminds me of her – a bit over the top and rather blousy, but jolly good fun at a party.
- 1 white sugar cube
- 3-4 drops of Angostura bitters
- 25ml/1oz brandy
- 125ml/4¼oz champagne or sparkling wine
1Place the sugar cube in the base of a flute and add the Angostura bitters and brandy. Top with well-chilled fizz and away you go.
