The French 75 is without any doubt a cocktail, and perhaps the only champagne cocktail that can truly be deemed delicious. Gin, lemon and sugar syrup transform the fizzy wine into a liquid made in heaven.
Premix the gin, lemon juice and sugar syrup, then pop it in the fridge for 1-2 hours.
Once cold, add this premix to a flute glass and top up with the chilled champagne.
Garnish with a fine lemon zwest twist, if liked.
