Happy Friday! If you’re looking for an elegant champagne-based cocktail to serve at your wedding, search no further as we have the oh so chic French 75 today. Even the name conjures up a swanky soiree along the Seines or perhaps a stroll along the Champs Elysees. Mais oui!
Not only is it super stylish, but it’s super simple, made with easy to find ingredients. What more could a Lazy Bride ask for (besides one more)…
1.5 oz gin
3/4 oz fresh lemon juice
1/2 oz simple syrup (1 cup boiling water, 1 cup white sugar – stir into water until dissolved)
1 cup ice cubes
2 oz chilled dry sparkling wine (ie Brut champagne)
Combine the gin, lemon juice and simple syrup with the ice in a cocktail shaker. Shake vigorously for 20 seconds. Strain into a champagne flute. Top with the sparkling wine and garnish with a strip of lemon peel.
