Cocktail du jour: Champagne Cocktail

When I sip these lovely libations, I feel as if I'm whirling around the dance floor at one of Jay Gatsby's West Egg parties.  Even if I'm wearing stretchy pants and sitting on my derriere while indulging in this bubbly treat, I somehow feel instantly more glamourous. 
I used my favorite inexpensive bottle of Cava (Jaume Serra Cristalino Brut Cava) to concoct this cocktail.  Simply place one sugar cube in a chilled champagne flute, then saturate the cube with 2-3 dashes of Peychaud's bitters.  Fill the glass with champagne, prosecco or cava and then float a spiral of lemon peel on top.  Simple as that and you're all set for the most fabulous party or just an evening of channel surfing.
