French 75 Cocktail (Serves 1)
With warmer evenings on the horizon I thought I would share this quintessential summer cocktail. A French 75 is the perfect combination of Champagne (or Prosecco), gin and lemon juice. Light and refreshing it was made for the summer!…
Tip: Put your champagne flute in the freezer before using it as it really does keep the champagne nicely chilled!
3 tablespoons gin
1.5 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon sugar syrup
Champagne (or Prosecco) to top up (about half a glass)
A handful of ice-cubes
A lemon twist to garnish (optional)
- Place the gin, lemon juice and sugar syrup in a cocktail shaker with a handful of ice. Shake for 15 seconds until cold. Strain the liquid into a champagne flute.
- Simply top off the glass with champagne, garnish with a twist of lemon and serve!
