AKA:

Champagne White Lady

Review:

The Sabot is a White Lady topped with a splash of fizz. Once you've experienced the firepower of a Sabot you'll never want to settle for a mere White Lady again.

History:

I'm thankful to Rollo Duckworth for introducing me to this champagne-charged cocktail, which, as he says, "has a cavalry flavour to it."

In the 1980s, Rollo served in the Royal Hussars in Germany when the regiment had Chieftain tanks. As he explains, "our fastest and very destructive tank round (bullet) was called a sabot. How a White Lady morphed into this is not known, though bizarrely I think my father was involved. It just made sense to share the name of our most powerful round with this cocktail."
