French 75-Drink

French 75
This is one of my favorite cocktails complex and refreshing. My favorite gin for this is Plymouth. The flavor is not dominated by juniper berries making it more herbal.

Serves 1

1/2 teaspoon sugar syrup (see recipe)
1 ounce (2 tablespoons) lemon juice
1 ounce (2 tablespoons)part gin
3 ounces (6 tablespoons)Champagne (dry)

Garnish with lemon twist

In a champagne flute add the sugar syrup, lemon juice, gin and top with Champagne.

Sugar Syrup
Makes ½ cup

½ cup sugar
½ cup water

Place sugar and water in a small sauce pan. Cook over high heat until the sugar is dissolved and the syrup comes to a boil for about 1 minute. Remove from heat and cool at room temperature. When cool store in the refrigerator for up to one week.
