Friday Night Cocktail: French 75

Although I’m a firm believer in drinking champagne and other sparkling wines at any time, there’s no denying that they’re great for celebrating, too. And there are few better reasons to celebrate than ringing out the old year and ringing in the new.

If you find yourself with some extra bubbly (or some leftover that’s still got some fizz), or you just feel like a change of pace, why not mix up a sparkling wine cocktail, like the classic French 75?

How to make a French 75

Combine the gin, syrup and lemon juice in a mixing glass with ice, shake for 15 seconds, then strain into a champagne flute. Top with sparkling wine and garnish with the lemon peel.

Happy New Year!
