Image Description

Method

This popular cocktail (the French 75) was developed in the 1920’s. It was said that sipping the combination of gin and champagne felt like being shelled by a French 75mm field gun in WW1. Blimey!

Away from the trenches we also love this classic when replacing the Champagne with Sussex Sparkling Wine. Also, swapping the lemon for orange delivers an unusual twist.

1.
Shake the Gin, Fresh Lemon Juice and Sugar Syrup hard with ice
2.
Strain into flute or Collins glass
3.
Slowly add 60ml of Sussex Sparkling Wine
4.
Garnish with strip of lemon or orange peel
