The French 75: Heaven With A Twist of Lemon

Louis Armstrong sings about a lady going to his head like the bubbles in Champagne. The truth serum of all spirits is likely the bubbles. I, like Satchmo; adore the lovely tipsy state this elixir induces. Good with brunch or dinner, I have yet to see someone act ugly on a good bottle of Moet. *jinx*


French 75

2 oz gin (I prefer Hendrick’s)

1 sugar cube

freshly squeezed lemon juice to  taste

fill the rest of the flute with your favorite Champagne

garnish with a lemon peel spiral, and rub the rim with a lemon wedge
