This antique cocktail was invented in 1917 at the Seelbach Hotel in Kentucky, and you can still get one there today. We often suggest rye as a substitute for bourbon. In this case, the cocktail hails from Kentucky – so it would be a true sin to use anything but real Kentucky bourbon.
On the other hand, while the original recipe calls for Champagne, it’s equally good with Prosecco or any other sparkling wine you like.
Build in the order given in a champagne flute. Garnish with an orange twist.
