French 75

Wednesday, May 2, 2012

Signature cocktail, a French 75 perhaps? 


  • 1/4 cup brute Champagne or dry sparkling wine
  • 3 tablespoons gin
  • Juice from 1/2 a lemon
  • 1 thin slice of lemon
  • 1 cherry (optional) and not a maraschino!
  • 1 teaspoon super fine sugar or simple syrup
  • About 3/4 cup ice


  1. Muddle a cherry slightly and place in tumbler. Pour Champagne over. Combine gin, lemon juice, ice and sugar in a cocktail shaker and shake vigorously for 15 seconds. Pour over Champagne and cherry.
