Pisco, the South American brandy made from grapes, adds a floral, citrusy kick to this sparkling cocktail made with Lillet Rosé and champagne, based on one served at Manhattan bar The Peacock. We like a dry but fruity rosé for the topper; here, we've used Moët & Chandon's Chandon Rosé, which adds juicy apricot and raspberry notes without bringing too much sweetness.
