Thought this recipe was given to us by author and former Gramercy Tavern managing partner Nick Mautone, it is a classic cocktail. Named after a piece of artillery during World War I, this drink was originally made with gin. Over time it became more popular using brandy.


  1. 1In each of 6 glasses place 1 sugar cube or 1/2 teaspoon sugar, 2 dashes of the orange bitters, and 1 ounce of the gin or brandy.
  2. 2Squeeze a lemon wedge into each glass and discard the wedge. Stir.
  3. 3Divide the sparkling wine evenly among the glasses, garnish each glass with an orange twist, and serve.
