Cocktail Recipe: French 75

It’s a beautiful day and to help ease the end-of-summer transition, we thought we’d share a time tested and delicious summer cocktail recipe.  You can’t beat a good champagne cocktail when the weather is warm.  Enjoy!

French 75

1 ½ oz Gin

¾ oz Lemon Juice

½ oz Simple Syrup

3 oz Champagne or Sparkling Wine

Lemon Twist for Garnish

In a shaker, combine the gin, lemon juice and simple syrup and shake until combined.  Strain the mixture into a champagne flute and top with the champagne.  To make the lemon twist, cut a thin strip of lemon peel (yellow part only) and wrap it tightly around a straw.  Remove it from the straw and hang it on the edge of the champagne flute.
