The recipe for Champagne Cocktail was first published in 1862 in "The Bartender's Guide: How To Mix Drinks" by Jerry Thomas.

Some call for the inclusion of Cognac in the Champagne Cocktail, but neither in Jerry Thomas' 1862 book nor in any other for decades after is there any trace of Cognac in this recipe.

The champagne cocktail is ideal for the most prestigious parties and celebrations, the small touches of bitterness and finesse softened by sugar make this cocktail quite exquisite.
