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)

  1. 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.
  2. Simply top off the glass with champagne, garnish with a twist of lemon and serve!
