We celebrate our one year anniversary on Coast Live [LINK] with a unique take on a Whiskey Sour.
Our Champagne Sour mixes whiskey with any sparkling wine such as Cava, Champagne, and Prosecco. The sparkling wine mimics the pop or lemon and the sweetness of a simple syrup found in a Whiskey Sour. Traditional garnishes of a maraschino cherry and orange slice are used.
If you’d like a sparkling wine cheat sheet which tells you a little about the differences and similarities between them, email us at Patrick@VirginiaEatsAndDrinks.com and put “Sparkling Wine Cheat Sheet” in the subject line.
Here’s how to make the drink:
In an old fashioned glass, add 1-1/2 ounces of bourbon; we like the offerings from Tarnished Truth Distilling Co. in Virginia Beach [LINK]. Add ice and top with champagne. Stir, and garnish with an orange wedge and a few cocktail cherries on a cocktail pick.
Cocktail garnishes come from our partners at The Fresh Market [LINK], the official grocer of Virginia Eats + Drinks.
