Cocktail Hour – The French 75

FNM_120111-Centerfold-002_s4x3.jpg.rend.sni12col.landscapeIn honor of my time in Paris this week, the featured cocktail is the classic French 75. I love this cocktail because it contains two of my favorite libations, gin AND champagne!

The French 75 

.5 oz lemon juice

.5 oz simple syrup

1 oz gin

3 oz champagne

Add all the ingredients except the Champagne to a shaker and fill with ice.

Shake well and strain into a Champagne flute.

Top with the Champagne and garnish with a lemon twist.

I chose a quintessential french inspired outfit to wear while you enjoy your cocktail.  What is it about stripes that evoke Paris?
