Shani is my wife, but long before that, she moved into my apartment with me in New York, and I sent her a package addressed to: Princess Shani La La. The rest is history. The big oaky flavor of bourbon is tamed by the citrusy sweetness of the Shani Syrup, and the champagne adds sparkle and effervescence, which reminds me of Shani’s personality.
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add the bourbon and syrup. Put the lid on and shake for 10 seconds. Strain the mixture into a champagne coupe, top with champagne, and garnish with the mint.
