Our second wine cocktail is an easy-to-make variation on the classic Champagne Cocktail we’re calling—with a nod
to Victor Laszlo & Captain Renault—The Américain.
Sprinkle a sugar cube with a couple dashes of bitters & drop it into a Champagne flute. Add 1/2 oz. of brandy or Cognac
(although a touch more than that can’t do any harm), then fill the flute to just below the rim with Toriamour or Pechette.
Add a maraschino cherry for garnish & you’re done.
Pechette & Toriamour are sweet enough on their own that you can consider the sugar cube optional—but the drink seems
kind of naked without it.
