This is a fun variation to the classic champagne cocktail. The classic champagne cocktail calls for sugar cube soaked in angostura bitters with champagne and lemon twist. This time around I’ve opted for whimsical rock candy skewer in place of the sugar cube. The rock candy lasts longer than a sugar cube, so you can use it for your second or third New Year’s Rock celebratory cocktail.
