You’ve assembled the ingredients for the meal, candles are flickering with the balmy night and appetizers are dished out on the table. There is just one more thing to prepare as the guests walk into your summer dinner party. Keep it classy, easy and light, and what better than a cocktail that was first invented in Paris.
The French 75 dates to World War I where an early form was created in 1915 and developed throughout the 1920’s.
Intended as an aromatic champagne cocktail, we think cava or prosecco will do you just fine in this case. So pop the bottle, mix the drink, and make sure you try before you buy!
Use a Champagne glass or flute to serve, and a shaker to combine ingredients
2 dashes simple syrup
1.5cl lemon juice
Shake all the ingredients except the champagne, together, with ice, in the shaker and strain into the champagne glass. Top up with the champagne. Stir gently. Enjoy!
