A friend of mine is doing a bit of wedding planning and asked for my thoughts on a cocktail to serve to her guests. She wanted to name the drink after her dog, who she described as bubbly, brown, and sweet. Not surprisingly, chocolate and champagne had popped into her mind.  Well, when someone else has done 90% of the work for you, there is no point in overdoing it. The best cocktails are the simple ones.

The Otter

1 glass of sparkling rose
1 sugar cube
3-5 dashes of Aztec chocolate bitters (to taste)

Drop sugar cube into the bottom of a Champagne glass. Coat/drown the cube in chocolate bitters. Pour sparkling rose over cube and bitters. You can play with the presentation with some chocolate syrup and/or powdered sugar on the glass.
