Shake Canton, bourbon and lemon juice with ice; pour into chilled coupe glass. Add champagne, and garnish with a twist.
I used a Blanc de Blancs champagne because a sparkling chardonnay will have stronger apple and lemon notes.
I replaced the original brandied cherry garnish with a twist of lemon--I felt the flavor and appearance was more appropriate with the addition of champagne
A fizz take on Domaine de Canton's "The Gold Rush"--itself basically an altered cold version of a Hot Toddy. I did, however, change the bourbon to Maker's 46, because its stronger vanilla and oak flavors prevented the muting of whiskey notes when combined with champagne
