Brighten your palate with this light, refreshing champagne cocktail served in a small glass with a slice of lemon floating on top. At first sip, the gentle fizz from the bubbly champagne combined with a sharp citrus-tinge from a spritz of lemon juice will flood your mouth, brightening your senses. The soothing rosemary aftertaste offsets the acidic elements of the fresh lemon, making it a perfectly-balanced drink that is neither too sweet nor too sour.
This delightful cocktail sits well in the airy atmosphere of the exposed-brick walls and high ceilings at Brandywine Kitchen in downtown Bellingham. Savor the drink while reading the small, curled notes past patrons have placed between bricks of one wall. Or pair the drink with one of Brandywine’s Caesar and salmon cakes, or a side of their hand-cut fries, to complete the experience. All ingredients are locally and sustainably sourced.
