What to buy: St-Germain is an elderflower liqueur that has won over bartenders. It can be found at high-end liquor stores and online.

Instructions

Soak the sugar cube with the bitters and place it in the bottom of a chilled champagne flute. Add the elderflower liqueur, top with the sparkling wine, and serve.
