Traditionally made with Champagne, our take on the famous French 75 cocktail uses the ever-popular Italian sparkling wine for the bubbles.
The French 75 cocktail is the perfect drink for anyone who loves gin and sparkling wine. For us, there’s something about a cocktail served in a flute that feels extra special.

Top tips for making a French 75 cocktail
- If you plan to serve this cocktail throughout the evening, ensure your sparkling wine is in the fridge chilling and consider making a batch of the gin, lemon juice, and sugar syrup mixture. Use a ratio of roughly one-quarter lemon gin mix to three quarters fizz.
- We have used prosecco but the cocktail is traditionally made with Champagne and will give it some creamy, brioche notes.
