Sometimes Saturdays are leisurely days that call for an elaborately crafted beverage – one where you maybe take the time to experiment with getting ratios just right, combining new ingredients, and starting over if need be until you arrive at something perfect and special. Then there are those busy Saturdays full of errands and chores that call for a quick and easy champagne cocktail. The husband and I are in the throes of repainting and redecorating one of the rooms in our house, so guess what type of Saturday today is? Champagne cocktails are great because the champagne makes them special enough for the weekend, but they are super easy to throw together. Oatmeal Cookie is a simple pleasure, like its namesake baked good. It features Stone Barn’s American Oat Whiskey which is one of my new favorite cocktail play things. It has a sweet nuttiness that I am really enjoying.
