French 75 Cocktail
Provided by: Alexis Touchet
A bit of controversy surrounds the origins of this gin cocktail, but whether its city of birth was Paris or New Orleans, this is a drink meant for celebrations. It's light, fizzy, and festive.
- Half fill the cocktail shaker with cracked ice, then add gin, lemon juice, and sugar. Shake the mixture vigorously, then strain it into a highball glass packed with cracked ice. Fill the glass slowly with champagne and give it a stir.
