The weather is finally warming up, and we’re all itching for a vacation. Even though we know the odds of taking a last-minute weekend trip to Paris are slim, we can still pretend we’re sitting on the Avenue des Champs-Élysées by mixing up a batch of refreshing French 75 cocktails. Watch as bartender David from The Bennett mixes up the perfect weekend drink for daydreaming.
What You Need:
- 3/4 ounce lemon juice
- 1/2 ounce simple syrup
- 1 ounce gin
- 2 ounces Champagne
- a twist of lemon peel, for garnish
- a cocktail shaker
- a chilled Champagne flute
Step 1: Combine the lemon juice, simple syrup and gin in your cocktail shaker. Give them a good, hard shake to mix everything together.
Step 2: Add the Champagne to the cocktail shaker, then pour the drink into your chilled flute.
Step 3: Add a lemon peel twist for garnish. Oh mon Dieu, isn’t that delicious?
