French 75

  • Preparation 10 MIN
  • Servings 1
The French 75 dates back to World War I, when the potent kick of gin topped with champagne was first poured at the New York Bar in Paris.



  1. Fill a champagne glass with half of the ice cubes (½ cup/75 g) for 5 minutes to chill the glass. Discard the ice cubes.
  2. In a cocktail shaker, vigorously combine the gin, lemon juice, syrup and the remaining ice cubes (½ cup/75 g). Filter into the chilled glass. Top up with the champagne and garnish with the lemon zest.
