Champagne has always been a favorite drink for special occasions, but why not turn it into a cocktail and drink it more often. French 75 has been around since 1915 and was created in a New York style bar in Paris and was brought back to the United States after World War I. The French 75 name comes from a 75mm French field gun that many said had the same kick as this drink.
1 ounce Gin, Hendricks is my favorite
1/2 ounce Cointreau orange liqueur
1/2 ounce lemon juice, freshly squeezed
In a martini shaker pour gin, Cointreau and lemon juice. Add ice to the shaker and shake until combined. Pour the mixture into champagne flutes.
Next, add the champagne to flutes and stir with a spoon
