Cognac Sparkler

"Cooking demands attention, patience, and above all, a respect for the gifts of the earth. 
It is a form of worship, a way of giving thanks."
- Judith B. Jones

As we prepare our Thanksgiving feast today, I plan on putting on my most festive apron, digging deep into the gifts of the Earth and sipping this cognac sparkler! 

Cognac Sparkler

1 oz Cognac
sparkling apple cider
Angostura bitters

Pour Cognac into a Champagne flute; top with sparkling apple cider and top with a few dashes of bitters.

Notes: Cognac is a grape brandy produced in a specific region of France, but this cocktail would be equally lovely with Calvados or Applejack, both apple brandies. Hard cider can be substituted for sparkling non-alcoholic cider if you're serving this cocktail as an after-dinner treat. Cheers, and happy Thanksgiving!
