Each expression is amazing in its own respect, but the Grand Cordon Brut is my personal favorite. It’s their signature house style champagne. It’s light, crisp with notes of fruit and vanilla; and it’s great for sipping on its own or in cocktails.
When it comes to classic champagne cocktails, the Grand Cordon Brut is great in a French 75, or a classic champagne cocktail. It’s good to change things up and mix up something seasonably appropriate, so I put together a holiday Champagne cocktail with G.H. Mumm Grand Cordon Brut, Scotch whisky, cranberry syrup, fresh pineapple, lime, and more.
The full recipe to this Cranberry Scotch Champagne cocktail is below. Cheers!
Cranberry Scotch Champagne Cocktail
1.5 oz Scotch Whisky (we recommend Red Breast 12 yr.)
1 oz Pineapple juice
1/2 oz Lime juice
1/2 oz Cranberry syrup
2 dashes of bitters
2 oz G.H. Mumm Grand Cordon Brut
INSTRUCTIONS Combine all ingredients, except for the G.H. Mumm, into a cocktail shaker and fill with ice. Shake to chill the drink, then strain it into a G.H. Mumm Cloupe glass, then add in the Grand Cordon Brut. Top with crushed ice, and garnish with speared cranberries. Cheers!
How to Make Cranberry Syrup In a medium saucepan, combine 1 cup of water, 1 cup of sugar, and 1 cup of cranberries. Bring the mix to a light simmer until the cranberries begin to split and release their juice. Gently stir to dissolve the sugar. Remove the syrup from the heat and allow it to cool. Strain out the cranberries and store the syrup in a glass jar in the refrigerator for up to 2 weeks.
