David’s Holiday Cocktail Recipe: The French 75

It’s a happy, celebratory time of year, and when I think “happy” and “celebration,” I think champagne. One of my favorite champagne cocktails is the French 75, a classic concoction. Here’s what you need and how to make it:
• 1⁄2 oz Fresh lemon juice
• 1⁄2 oz Simple syrup
• 1 oz Gin (I like Plymouth or Fords)
• 3 oz Champagne
Add all the ingredients except the Champagne into a shaker with ice and shake well.
Strain into a Champagne flute.
Top with the Champagne.
Garnish with a lemon twist.
If you don’t like gin, make a French 76, which is basically the same concoction, except instead of gin you use vodka.
Happy Holidays from Ancel Glink’s Quorum Forum podcast!
