Pictured in the center in the photo above, this is basically an “improved” champagne cocktail. “Improved” usually just means the addition of a modifying spirit, namely Curacao or Maraschino, but also absinthe, Chartreuse and so on.


  • 2 dashes Regan’s orange bitters
  • 2 dashes grapefruit bitters
  • 2 drops Leopold absinthe
  • ½ ounce Luxardo Maraschino
  • 1 ounce Tanqueray gin
  • Prosecco to top
  • Garnish: Cucumber wheel and sprig of fresh tarragon


  • Combine first five ingredients, and give a quick shake. Transfer to a champagne glass, and top with your favorite prosecco. Garnish with cucumber wheel and tarragon.
