Recipe--The Cussing Penguin

Tonight, November 12, I planned to make classic cognac-based French 75 cocktails in my penguin-shaped cocktail shaker if the boys underperformed.  Unfortunately, I had the opportunity.  However, I didn't feel right about wasting champagne, not even the cheap and cheerful kind, on a cocktail on a weeknight.  Also, um, I have to work tomorrow.  So I substituted Lorina sparkling lemonade.  Chris Kunitz gave my tasty new cocktail its name.  It's bitter, like defeat, but with a slight edge of sweetness, like the knowledge that Evgeni Malkin will be back soon and Martin Brodeur didn't get to set a record for shutouts with our guys.


Cussing Penguin

1 1/2 ounce cognac
1 ounce lemon juice
1 teaspoon sugar
6 ounces sparkling lemonade

Mix cognac, lemon juice, and sugar in a cocktail shaker. Add crushed ice; shake until liquid is chilled. Pour cognac mixture in champagne flute. Pour in sparkling lemonade up to the top.
