1 sugar cube
8 dashes bitters
2 twists of lemon
Place sugar cube in a chilled champagne flute, splash with 8 dashes bitters (one for each year), fill the glass with bubbly, and squeeze in two twists of lemon (one for each term). Drink, savoring the sweet finish. The sugar comes at the end.
Today we have unlocked the doors of power. Tomorrow we’ll bust them wide open and march through en masse. Tonight, though, let’s take the opportunity to celebrate. And have a drink.
