A perfect light fizzy Cocktail! Perfect for any occasion or no occasion at all – Gin, Lemon juice, sugar syrup and champagne – what’s not to love?

French 75 is a cocktail made from gin, Champagne, lemon juice, and sugar. It is also called a 75 Cocktail, or in French simply a Soixante Quinze. Or as I’ve named this one  a ‘Friday French Fizz’

This is especially for the beautiful Paula Hart who introduced me to one of best cocktails bars around, Mokoko in Saint Albans where I had my first French 75




Serves 1

  • 4 tablespoons Gin
  • 1 tablespoon Lemon Juice (juice from half a lemon )
  • Lemon (for fancy peel)
  • 1 teaspoon sugar syrup – or sprinkle of caster sugar
  • Fizz – choice is yours – cava, processo, champagne, sparkling wine
  • ICE

Preparation Method

  1. Put some ice in a shaker, add the gin, sugar and lemon juice and shake.
  2. Pour into flute and top up with fizz, finish  with twirl of peel
