Happy Mother’s Day to all my mommy friends out there.
We’ve had a tough year. To all the moms who had to work, keep the kids at home and run your households- here’s to you. I hope someone makes this incredible cocktail for you.
The French 75.
The Mother of all champagne cocktails.
Simple syrup. Lemon juice. Gin.
Mix in a shaker over ice. Strain. Pour in champagne. Yes, Champagne.
Garnish with a long lemon peel.
And make mom a second drink- she needs it.
2 oz Champagne
2 oz gin
1/2 oz simple syrup
juice of half lemon
lemon peel to garnish
Method- makes 1 cocktail
- Mix gin, simple syrup and lemon juice in a cocktail shaker over ice. Mix vigorously until your shaker is frosted over.
- Strain. Pour into a champagne flute and top with cold champagne. Garnish with lemon peel.
- Notes: I always make my simple syrup with fruit or herb infusions. A lemon simple syrup really elevates this cocktail.
