Frankincense, Myrrh and Gold champagne cocktail
Preparation time
Total time
If your guests have delicate palates, or your glasses are small, use the smaller amount of sugar. My glasses take 12cl and with a full teaspoon of sugar, they needed a top-up half-way through to balance the flavour. I love watching the bubbles as the champagne hits the sugar: this is particularly nice as specks of gold rise with the bubbles.
Recipe type: Drink
Serves: 1
  • 0.5 to a scant teaspoon Zing Organics frankincense, myrrh and gold sugar.
  • 1 teaspoon Opihr
  • Brut champagne
  • Or a good, dry sparkling wine. Dry is important, region isn't. The gin and sugar add sweetness, the resins add an organic depth. The wine needs to be dry or the drink will be too much.
  1. Spoon the sugar into the bottom of a champagne flute.
  2. Pour in the gin.
  3. Top off the glass with brut champagne.
  4. Enjoy immediately.
