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.
