Cocktail of the Week: American Flyer

I tried this one the other night as we sipped Champagne on New Years Eve. I thought I would mix things up a little (literally), pulled out The Ultimate Bar Book and experimented.  This sipper was delicious.  Like a fizzy Daiquiri in a flute.

American Flyer
Makes one cocktail.

1 1/2 ounce white rum
1/2 ounce fresh lime juice
1/2 teaspoon sugar
3-5 ounces chilled sparkling wine

Shake all the ingredients except the bubbly with ice.  Strain into a chilled champagne flute and slowly top with the sparkling wine.
