The Seelbach cocktail has an interesting and checkered history. While it may not be exactly what it claims, it's a delicious addition to our cocktail

  • 1 oz. Bourbon whiskey
  • 1/2 oz. Cointreau or other triple sec
  • 7 dashes Angostura bitters
  • 7 dashes Peychaud's bitters
  • 5 oz. Brut Champagne or dry sparkling wine

Combine Bourbon, triple sec, and bitters in a mixing glass, add ice, and stir. Pour into a champagne flute or large cocktail glass. Top with the sparkling wine and give a light stir. Garnish with an orange twist.

NOTE: Well, I made a mistake. I say in the episode this is shaken. It should, in fact, be stirred. Sorry about the confusion.
