This drink is mentioned in passing in the film Casablanca. I make it with about half as much sugar (1 tsp) and lemon juice (about 3/4 oz). I fill it with an entire 187 ml "mini-bottle" of champagne--a perfect size for a cocktail like this. I must make this drink for my wife at least three times a week...
