Peychaud's bitters gives this easy cocktail from Chicago's Pops for Champagne its bright red color, elderflower liqueur gives it sweetness and floral flavors, and brut Champagne gives it a crisp, tickling finish. The orchid garnish is optional, but don't dismiss it too fast; it makes the drink feel all the more special.
