When I think of weddings, one of the first things that come to mind is champagne… the toasts, the bubbles, champagne flutes – so romantic right? In honor of wedding week, I wanted to provide you with a classic champagne cocktail recipe – the French 75. The fun of champagne with a dangerous little twist!
- 1 1/2 oz gin
- Juice of one lemon
- 1/2 oz simple syrup
- 2-3 oz champagne or sparkling wine
- Combine gin, lemon juice and simple syrup in an ice filled shaker. Shake for a good 30 seconds until frosty.
- Strain into chilled champagne flute and top with champagne/sparkling wine.
- Garnish with lemon twist.
*The key here is dry champagne and ice cold ingredients – the colder the better!
