Prince of Wales’ cocktail

Put the sugar in a mixing glass with the bitters and one-half teaspoon water. Stir briefly until it has dissolved. Add the rye, the maraschino and pineapple chunk. Fill two-thirds full of cracked ice and shake vigorously to crush the pineapple. Strain into a chilled martini glass; add the cold Champagne. Garnish with a twist of lemon zest. Serve immediately.
