Total Time: 5 mins | Active Time: | Makes: 4 drinks

A sweet and bubbly cocktail with cherries given to us by author and former Gramercy Tavern managing partner Nick Mautone.

INGREDIENTS
  • 5 teaspoons maraschino cherry syrup
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 12 maraschino cherries
  • 4 brown sugar cubes
  • 8 dashes angostura bitters
  • 1 bottle sparkling wine, chilled
INSTRUCTIONS
  1. Pour cherry syrup on a small plate and place granulated sugar on another. Working with one champagne glass at a time, invert it and dip the rim in the cherry syrup, allowing any excess to drip off, then immediately dip the rim lightly in the sugar. The sugared rim should be a light pink color.
  2. Place 3 maraschino cherries, a sugar cube, and 2 dashes of bitters in each champagne glass. Fill the glasses with sparkling wine and serve immediately.
