Bourbon + Bubbles

Here we go with the Bourbon again.  What can I say?  Only this time it is better because I’m adding champagne to the mix.  Bourbon and champagne?  Oh man.  Yes please. Went to this new Whiskey bar in Ballard with my CrossFit ladies, and ordered something similar to this.  I’ve since recreated it, so that I can enjoy it without paying $9.  Per drink. And you can bet I consumed more than one of these puppies.  I love everything with bubbles, and I hope you enjoy this drink too!  Oh, and I wasn’t drinking alone.  I promise. Husband just wouldn’t give his up for a photo.  PS, aren’t my champagne flutes beautiful? Love my aunt Michaela for sending those to me!

  • Juice of 1 orange
  • 3 shots of bourbon
  • 1 cup or so of champagne (enough to top off your glass….)
1.  Combine juice of 1 orange and 3 shots of bourbon in cocktail shaker with ice.  Make sure you don’t add champagne to the shaker, or the step two won’t be pretty… Not that I’m speaking from experience or anything…
2.  Shake.
3.  Pour evenly into two glasses, and top off with champagne.  Wasn’t that easy?
*Use organic ingredients whenever possible.
