This one is pretty simple. You can service it 2 ways: First, you can pour in the champagne (about 2/3 full) and place the cotton candy on top. When you’re ready to drink, simply push the cotton candy in the glass and watch the magic unfold. Or – you can put the cotton candy in first, squish it to the bottom, and then pour the rosé over. Either way it’s pretty fantastic. Enjoy!
