DIY Cocktails: creating a Champagne Classic

At Rogano we believe that you should celebrate the good times with champagne and plenty of spirit.

We serve a selection of Champagne based cocktails guaranteed to liven up the bubbles, but my favourite of the bunch has to be the Champagne Classic - an ever popular drink at Rogano as it encapsulates our unique history and tradition.

Adding cognac makes the Champagne Classic extra sumptuous, the bitters add sharpness and the melted sugar creates a subtle sweetness that balances out the bitters as you drink. The Champagne always shines through in this classic, and with the kick of the cognac it really is the perfect cocktail for celebrating.
