This is by far my favorite drink. I first had one when Chris and I ventured over to Justine's on the eastside and I've been hooked ever since. French 75's really are perfect for any occasion and time. Below is the recipe I like to follow when I make mine at home, but of course you can always edit the recipe to suit your own tastes. Cheers ya'll!
French 75 Recipe
- 1 oz. gin
- 1 oz. lemon juice
- 1/2 oz. simple syrup*
- 2 oz. champagne
Combine gin, lemon juice and simple syrup into a shaker filled with ice. Shake to combine, then strain mixture into flute and top with champagne. Give one stir and enjoy!
*Making your own simple syrup at home is super easy, all you have to do is in a small pan bring 1 cup of water and 1 cup of sugar to a boil, then stir till sugar dissolves. Let cool before using.
