Christmas Cocktails vol. III : The French 75

The French 75 is a classic celebratory cocktail and a perfect way to kick of a round of presents on Christmas Day.  It’s a luxurious and simple drink that packs a punch.  The name allegedly comes from early advocates who claimed the kick was similar to being shelled by the 75mm French field gun, also known as the French 75…

To make, simply combine 40ml of Sipsmith Gin, 25ml of freshly squeezed lemon juice and 15ml of simple sugar syrup (you can see how to make this here) in an ice filled cocktail shaker and shake well.  Strain into a champagne glass and top with champagne.  It could hardly be easier.
