French 75 Cocktail

I was first introduced to this delicious cocktail as I celebrated 2010 New Year in New York with my wonderful husband and our friends Janet and Joe.  We went to a restaurant called Abe & Arthurs for our New Years dinner and Janet and I ended 2009 off right drinking French 75’s.  I remember wishing everyone a Happy New Year, but not much after that….

Let me just say this is a very dangerous drink! 🙂

  • 1 ounce gin
  • 1 tablespoon of simple syrup
  • 1 tablespoon fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • Dry champagne
  • Lemon twist to garnish

Combine gin, simple syrup, and lemon juice in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake until well chilled and strain into a glass. Top with Champagne and garnish with a lemon twist to serve.
