French 75 Cocktail

  • Yield: 1 drink 1x


A classic gin cocktail with fresh lemon juice, simple syrup, and champagne. It is refreshing, bubbly, and citrusy. The perfect drink to enjoy for the holidays, celebrations, special brunches or just a hot summer day!


  • 2 ounces of gin (this can also be made with brandy or bourbon but I prefer gin which is more classic)
  • .5 ounce of simple syrup
  • .5 ounce of lemon juice
  • 56 ounces of champagne (I usually just fill the glass the rest of the way up)


In a shaker or mixer, combine the gin, simple syrup, and lemon juice with ice. Stir/ shake until the drink is icy cold. Strain into a champagne glass and then top with champagne. Serve with a lemon twist and enjoy!
