French 75

French 75

French 75 - two ways (one for me, one for @elisehooper) | In my latest author interview with Elise Hooper, author of Learning to See, she named the French 75 as her signature drink. I LOVE a good champagne cocktail…so here are two ways to make a French 75, depending on your spirit of choice.

#1 -
INGREDIENTS:
- 1/2 oz Lemon juice
- 1 oz Gin
- 2 Dashes Simple syrup
- Champagne
- Lemon twist for garnish

#2 - 
INGREDIENTS:
- 3/4 oz lemon juice
- 1 oz Cognac
- 1/2 oz simple syrup - Champagne - Lemon twist for garnish

DIRECTIONS:
Choose your spirit of choice (although I prefer gin cocktails, cognac makes a delicious French 75, so don’t be scared to try it!) Combine gin or cognac, simple syrup, and lemon juice into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake like you mean it. Strain into a champagne flute and top with champagne. Garnish with a lemon twist. #ahastycocktail
