Thirsty Thursday: French 75




I thought today would be the perfect day to share one of my favorite cocktail recipes: the French 75. 
I love gin and I absolutely love champagne so this is a match made in heaven, for sure (see another favorite gin recipe of mine here)! I was headed to my friend, Amanda's, and I thought this would be a fun drink to bring along for the festivities! It was great to sip on as she taught me how to make homemade sushi! 

What you'll need:
  • Fresh lemon juice
  • Simple Syrup
  • Gin 
  • Sparkling wine
  • Lemon twist 
All you need to do is mix all of the ingredients together in a cocktail shaker (except for the sparkling wine). Once mixed, pour drink mixture over sparkling wine. Garnish with the lemon peel and you're all set! So simple and so fresh and delicious. What's your go-to cocktail? Have a fabulous day! 

Yours,

LOVE French 75s, though I think my all-time favorite cocktail would be a St. Germain or a classic G&T!
