Strawberry and Rhubarb French 75

by James Stevenson
One of my favorite cocktails is the classic French 75! It comes to the table with everything I adore: Champagne, gin, and lemon. I love drinking champagne after a long day but so many times I forget about ordering this classic gem! To amp this classic up a notch I have added beautiful strawberries and a rhubarb simple syrup.

Ingredients:

  • 1 ounce of gin
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced
  • 1 tablespoon of rhubarb simple syrup (*recipe below)
  • 3-4 ounces of Michelle Brut
  • 1/2 cup of ice

Instructions:

  • Add gin, lemon juice, rhubarb simple syrup, and ice to cocktail shaker
  • Shake mixture then strain into champagne glass
  • Top with Michelle Brut
  • Garnish with a strawberry
