Today we have the Ritz Fizz, a mix of Champagne, amaretto, blue Curaçao, and lemon juice. It tasted exactly like what you’d expect if you had a glass of Champagne and did not add amaretto, blue Curaçao, or lemon juice. The recipe called for a dash of each of the other ingredients. Maybe our definition of a “dash” isn’t the same as Mr. Boston’s, but the dashes weren’t enough to be detectable. You could smell lemon but I think that was mostly due to the lemon peel garnish.
The good news is that both Mrs. Bottle and I like Champagne so we liked this drink. We can’t give it a perfect five, though, because this is a blog about cocktails, not Champagne. A blog about Champagne would probably be kind of boring, but at least you wouldn’t have to drink any Scotch.
