Description

The French 75 is a classic cocktail made with gin and lemon. It’s sophisticated and perfect for celebrations of all kinds!


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 1/2 ounces (3 tablespoons) gin
  • 3/4 ounce (1 1/2 tablespoons) lemon juice (plus lemon twist garnish, optional)
  • 1/2 ounce (1 tablespoon) simple syrup or pure maple syrup
  • 3 ounces (6 tablespoons) champagne (about 1/2 glass)*

Instructions

  1. Make the lemon twist garnish, if using.
  2. Place the gin, lemon juice, and syrup in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake 15 seconds until cold. Strain the liquid into a champagne flute.
  3. Top off the glass with champagne (no need to measure). Garnish and serve. (Note: You can also make a large batch of gin, lemon juice, and syrup ahead if desired, then measure out 6 tablespoons per glass.)

Notes

*You’ll get about 8 to 10 drinks per 1 bottle of champagne. Make it non-alcoholic by using non-alcoholic sparkling wine.
