French 75

The French 75 is a classic cocktail that has been around since World War I. It is a refreshing and bubbly drink that combines gin, lemon juice, sugar, and champagne.

To make a French 75, you typically start by shaking gin, lemon juice, and sugar with ice in a cocktail shaker. Then you strain the mixture into a champagne flute or coupe glass, and top it off with chilled champagne. Some people also like to garnish their French 75 with a lemon twist or a cherry.

The resulting cocktail is both tart and sweet, with a fizzy, champagne-induced effervescence that gives it a light and celebratory feel.

It's a great drink to serve at parties, or to enjoy as a pre-dinner or post-dinner drink.
