Love gin and Champagne? Combine the two in this classic cocktail with lemon
Apparently, this cocktail got its name because it was as powerful as the French 75-millimetre light field gun, known for its accuracy and speed and popular in World War 1. It’s certainly got a kick and it’s bloomin’ delicious, so remember to enjoy responsibly.
• 20ml lemon juice
• 10ml sugar syrup
• 50ml gin
Pour the lemon juice, sugar syrup and gin into a cocktail shaker then fill up with ice. Shake well and strain into a chilled Champagne flute. Top with a little Champagne, leave to settle, then fill up with more bubbly. Stir gently and garnish with a strip of lemon zest.
