Cocktail Hour: French 75

I discovered the French 75 at our Christmas party in Bourne and Hollingsworth earlier this week. A cocktail with gin AND champagne in? Yes please! Unfortunately, whilst this seems like a good idea on Tuesday, I was not a happy bunny the next day.


But yum! Really really yum! Just as long as you don't think it's a good idea to drink seven of them, you'll be just fine. There's some question about whether the drink was originally made with cognac or gin, but I had gin, so let's stick with that.

You'll need:
  • 50ml gin
  • 30ml lemon juice
  • Champagne
  • Sugar powder (or caster sugar at a push)
  • Cherry to garnish
Make it!

Pop your cherry at the bottom of a champagne flute. Shake together the gin, lemon and sugar with ice. Strain into the glass and top up with bubbly. Drink lots and lots, sing Christmas songs and have a very merry time indeed.

    Me and my beautiul friends invented our own version of this: the French 69. Use sloe gin instead!

  2. That sounds equally brilliant. But it won't get rid of the double hangover, will it?
