How to Make It

Stir the whiskey, the Aperol, and the sugar in a chilled glass until the sugar is dissolved. Fill to near the top with champagne, add a squeeze of lemon then garnish with the slice, and enjoy. Note: This much booze will totally get you drunk in love. This recipe is easily halved for sipping or serving at a party. If you’re going to make a batch to serve to a group, just mix the whiskey, Aperol and sugar ahead of time, then pour the champagne into each glass.

Why We Like It

The world is drunk in love with Beyoncé right now since she's just announced she's having twins, and I wanted to make a cocktail in honor of her total media/music/world domination—something Mrs. Carter herself would enjoy (when she's not pregnant). A few unreliable Internet sources have different claims to her favorite drink, but her Instagram feed makes it pretty clear that the lady likes champagne. I do love a good champagne cocktail, so I mixed a little whiskey with aperol and topped it off with some bubbly for Beyoncé. This easy cocktail is also a really manly way to drink champagne.
