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?
