  • ½ oz simple syrup (1:1)
  • 1 dash orange bitters
  • 3 oz Brut Cava

  • Combine the lemon juice, simple syrup and orange bitters in a cocktail shaker and shake. Strain into a flute or coupe and top with sparkling wine. Garnish with a lemon peel, pinching it first to express the oils over the drink before dropping it in.
