Amy LaBelle’s New Year’s Eve Sparkling Wine Bourbon French 75

LaBelle Winery Shimmer Sparkling Wine
Directly into a champagne flute, pour bourbon, bitters, and .5 ounces of lemon simple syrup, top with about 3 ounces of sparkling wine and garnish with a lemon twist. Enjoy!
To make lemon simple syrup:
Simmer lemon peel (just the yellow part, not the white pith) 1/2 cup water and 1/2 cup sugar in a saucepan until sugar is dissolved. Do not boil. Let cool. Remove lemon peels and store in a mason jar in fridge for up to two weeks.
