A cocktail with bubbles is always festive! A French 75 is a champagne cocktail made with gin and a twist of lemon. The flavors are balanced and enhance each other, creating a cocktail that is perfect any time of the year!

The gin and lemon juice mixture is topped with champagne, which gives the entire cocktail a bubbly finish. Garnishes are optional, but the most traditional is a lemon peel twist and, in my kitchen, a rosemary sprig.
