A French 75 is a great cocktail for entertaining because it's easy to make and it's customizable: You can add a small amount of your favorite liqueur (for example St-Germain, Chartreuse, Galliano, Amaretto, Campari, Benedictine, Italicus, etc.) to the base recipe to tweak it to your (or your guests') preference. 

Ingredients

    • 1 1/2 ounces dry sparkling wine
    • 1 1/2 ounces London Dry Gin or brandy
    • 3/4 ounce fresh lemon juice
    • 3/4 ounce simple syrup
    • Lemon peels for garnish

Preparation

Pour your favorite sparkling wine into a chilled Champagne flute.

Add the remaining ingredients into a cocktail shaker and shake briefly, but vigorously. Strain immediately into the Champagne flute over the sparkling wine. 

Squeeze the lemon oils from citrus peels over the drink and hang a pigtail lemon peel over the rim before serving. 

To customize the drink: Add 1/4 ounce of your favorite liqueur, such as St-Germain, Chartreuse, Galliano, Amaretto, Campari, Benedictine or Italicus.
