French 75

The French 75 gets its name from the World War I field artillery pieces that were 75-mm and did not threaten German troops in their trenches. British soldiers who mixed their gin with champagne decided that this drink hits you harder than the French 75.

  • 1 oz. gin
  • 1/2 oz. lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz. simple syrup or 1 tsp. bar sugar
  • 4 oz. champagne
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled champagne flute rimmed with sugar. Top with champagne and garnish with a lemon twist.
