Classic French 75
Enthusiasts of the Classic French 75 often have individual solid preferences when choosing between gin or cognac as the base spirit. This timeless recipe presents both options, allowing you to pour the one that suits your taste buds best.Alternatively, let the season or your mood guide your decision-making. Gin tends to create a cleaner, more botanical, and refreshing drink, making it an excellent choice for warmer weather. On the other hand, cognac adds a certain richness and weight to the concoction, making it particularly appealing during cooler seasons.
- In a shaker filled with ice, combine your choice of gin or cognac, lemon juice, and either simple syrup or shrub. Secure the shaker's lid and shake vigorously until the mixture is well chilled. Strain the resulting mixture into a Champagne or coupe glass and carefully top it off with Champagne. Finish the drink with a twist of lemon for that final touch of flavor.
