Ingredients

Simple Syrup (makes about 4 servings)

  • 1 lemon juiced
  • 2 tbsp superfine sugar

French 75 Cocktail (1 drink)

  • 1 ounce gin
  • 2 ounces dry prosecco
  • 1/2 ounce simple syrup

Instructions

Lemon Simple Syrup

  1. Juice the lemon. 

  2. In a bowl, whisk together the juice with the superfine sugar until it's dissolved. It's important to use superfine sugar as regular granulated sugar will not dissolve properly to create the syrup. Bob's Red Mill has a fine crystal sugar. Additionally, superfine sugar goes by the name of caster sugar. This can be difficult to find in grocery stores, but Amazon will have it. This lemon syrup mixture will be enough for about 4 cocktails. 

French 75 Cocktail

  1. Fill a chilled cocktail shaker with ice. Add 1 ounce gin and 1/2 ounce of the lemon simple syrup. 

  2. Shake well and strain into your cocktail glass of choice. I would go with a champagne coupe or flute. Given I was styling a Valentine's shoot, I used Sugar & Cloth's blush pink coupe glasses. 

  3. Top with the prosecco.
