What I’m Drinking: The Seelbach

So, you ever have those days when you lose a bunch of information about this or that (nothing that serious, but right annoying) and need a perfect drink to remind yourself that all is well in the dreamy and bright world. Turn to this lesser-known classic originally from a hotel of the same name in Louisville, KY. It won’t let you down, friends, in the least.

The Seelbach

1 ounce bourbon

1/2 ounce Cointreau

7 dashes Peychaud’s bitters

7 dashes Angostura bitters

Chilled brut Champagne or sparkling wine

Orange twist, for garnish

1. Pour the bourbon, Cointreau, and the two bitters into a flute glass. Stir briefly.

2. Fill the flute almost to the top with the chilled Champagne or sparkling wine. Stir again, but don’t get nutty about it. Garnish with the orange twist.
