20(ish)--- Champagne Cocktail

This old-fashioned beverage is a nice change from a glass of champagne on New Year's Eve.

AND champagne (dry sparkling wine) is typically lower in calories than other wines. Placing the sugar cube in the bottom of this cocktail allows the champagne to keep bubbling long into the night! Enjoy!
Thank you to my lovely friend Kara for her hand modeling!
