I've been in the mood for a French 75 so it's about time I have one. Used a recipe form Paris Cocktails by Doni Delau.
1 oz. Cognac
1/2 oz lemon juice
1/4 oz. simple syrup
Top with Champagne (sparkling wine)
Shake off of the ingredients in a shaker with ice, except for Champagne. Strain into a coup . Top with Champagne. Instead of using Champagne, I went with Veuve Ambal's Blanc de Blanc Brut. It's an affordable bottle of French bubbles that is great for topping off a sparkling cocktail. You can also sip on it's own when in the mood for bubbles. A bottle will run your only around $12. Perfect for those of you who want bang for your buck.
