Playboy’s Classic Champagne Cocktail

I’m still on vacation. I’m still chillaxing and enjoying the fact that I am done with the 1972 cards.

I’m celebrating, bitches.

And what is more celebratory than a little champs?

And the recipe for the Classic Champagne Cocktail.

Playboy Champagne Cocktail

A little bubbles, a little bitters, a little lemon and boom:

This wasn’t terribly fancy, but I love anything bubbles, and this was no exception.

I now want to revisit the book and make every single champagne cocktail that Playboy and Thomas have to offer.

But before I do that, I want to start the 1973 cards. And for me to crack open the 1973 set sooner rather than later, why not visit my Patreon page to help get the ball rolling?

Look at that fucker. There are no words.

Except maybe for barf.

    It’s bad enough that Ring of Gold sounds like a very messy sex act.

    I’ve never had one of those! I’ll have to try it someday. My favorite is champagne and Chambord. I have it every New Year’s/any time there’s an excuse honestly.
