I wanted some champagne last night but I knew I couldn’t finish the whole entire bottle. So; I decided to freeze the rest into cubes for a drink. This morning I was thinking about one of my favorite cocktails with champagne and it occurred to me that I could make a modified French 75 using the champagne cubes.
The champagne cubes do lose a bit of their effervescent qualities during the freezing process but you can add some club soda to make it more bubbly if you wish. I decided to make this pretty by adding the edible flowers. If you have left over sparkling try this spin on the classic French 75!
