French 75

One of the best champagne cocktails I’ve ever had was the French 75 at Arnaud’s in New Orleans. (Read about my trip here.) I have long since wanted to recreate Arnaud’s French 75 and I think I’ve finally done it. This, my friends, is one hell of a cocktail.

Simple syrup is easy to make and keeps for quite a while in the fridge. I love it in cocktails, coffee, and lattes. Just boil equal parts sugar and water (example: 1 cup sugar, 1 cup water) over medium heat until the liquid is clear and all of the sugar has been dissolved. Remove from heat and store in a container in the fridge.

Freshly squeezed lemon juice is key. I only used about half of the amount squeezed in the jar below to serve six people two cocktails each. You could use a different champagne or cognac but of course, it won’t taste exactly the same!
