How to make a French 75

Of all the champagne cocktails out there, the French 75 is one of the strongest and classiest. Named after a type of field cannon used by the French in World War I, the drink, like its eponymous moniker, sure packs a punch. Yet it remains a refined drink, usually served in a flute as you would do with fine champagne. Here’s how you make a French 75 at home.


  • 30ml gin
  • 90ml champagne
  • 15ml fresh lemon juice
  • 15ml simple syrup
  • Garnish: Lemon twist


  1. Fill shaker with ice, add in gin, lemon juice and syrup, then shake well
  2. Strain mixture into flute glass and top-up with champagne
  3. Garnish with lemon twist and serve
