Scotch Fizz Cocktail

On New Year’s Eve, I love to serve a cocktail inspired by the classic French 75. But instead of using brandy or gin as in the original mix, I use a single malt Scotch. Scotch is not only loaded with flavor, it pairs brilliantly with Champagne. Add a dash of Cointreau for a touch of sweetness and to round off the flavors, and you have a cocktail that’s worthy of an end-of-the-year bash.

Here’s wishing you a very bubbly New Year!
