1 oz Bourbon, Maker's Mark 46
1⁄2 oz Lemon juice
3 oz Champagne (Blanc de Blancs)
1 twst Lemon peel

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
