We've partnered with Simmer, a new app that allows you to generate step-by-step recipe videos that you can create, watch, and share from your very own kitchen. In the coming weeks and months, we'll continue sharing instructional videos that will teach you how to create tantalizing dishes from JBF Award winners, Beard House chefs, and even Beard himself, all prepared in James Beard's historic New York City kitchen.

What could be more fun, indulgent, and celebratory than a Champagne cocktail? Based on a Tom Collins, this recipe was originally published in James Beard's first book. While some recipes for this classic mashup of gin and bubbly skimp on the spirit, Beard's version features a two-to-one ratio of gin to Champagne. We’ll drink to that! Watch the video below, as JBF’s director of house programming Izabela Wojcik demonstrates how to delight your guests with this festive cocktail at home.
