Begin with all ingredients very cold, at least fridge temperature. Build all ingredients other than champagne acid in a mixing glass. Transfer to a carbonator bottle. Charge with CO2 three times at 45 PSI to thoroughly carbonate. Pour into a chilled AP white wine glass. Top with champagne acid. No garnish.

*Champagne Acid is a 6% solution of lactic and tartaric acids dissolved in water. It mimics the brightness of a wine that has gone through malolactic fermentation without adding additional wine based ingredients.
Champagne Acid:
3g lactic acid powder
3g tartaric acid powder
94g filtered water
