Recipe Name:
Marilyn Monroe Champagne Cocktail

There's a certain glamour to both cocktails and champagne, so it's no surprise that glamorous stars like Marilyn Monroe have come to be associated with champagne cocktails — and that some champagne cocktails have been named after stars, including Marilyn Monroe.

The Marilyn Monroe champagne cocktail is made from a base of champagne or sparkling wine, some apple brandy (or regular brandy and apple juice, if you have no apple brandy), and a dash of Grenadine syrup.

Marilyn Monroe's Stunt Double

Apple Brandy isn't easy for everyone to find, so the next best thing — a stunt double, if you will — is a combination of regular brandy with some apple juice. This isn't as good as the real thing, brandy made from apples, but it gives you some of the flavor and kick.

  • Apple Juice
  • Brandy

  • 1 dash Grenadine Syrup

Mix:

  • Gently stir together Apple Juice, Brandy and Champagne or Sparkling Wine, taking care to preserve carbonation.
