A concoction of bourbon and triple sec serves as the warm, citrusy base of the drink, while the substantial amount of Champagne adds vivacity with its sparkling crispness. The dashes of Angostura and Peychaud's bitters impart a complex aromatic profile, adding depth with their spice and slight floral notes. The layers of flavors create an elegant balance between the sweetness, the smooth warmth of the spirits, and the sparkle of the Champagne. Traditionally served in a Champagne glass, this cocktail is garnished with an orange peel twist to enhance its aromatic presence, making it an opulent choice for celebrations or as a sophisticated starter to an evening.
