"I enjoy the depth of this Champagne cocktail," says North Bondi Italian Food's award-winning bartender, Oliver Stuart. "I occasionally add a couple of bar spoons of Cointreau also, but when the oranges are in their prime it doesn't need it! It's the kind of cocktail that suits a festive occasion perfectly and one my guests enjoy before a weekend lunch in the summer."
