French 75 Recipe

By | Published , Last Updated on | Cocktails | One Comment

Described in a cocktail book of the early 20th century as a drink that ‘definitely hits the spot’, there seems to be some confusion about the actual ingredients for this classic. All recipes include champagne, but disagree about the spirits included.


4-6 cracked ice cubes

2 measures brandy

1 measure lemon juice

1 tbsp sugar syrup

Champagne, chilled

Twist of lemon peel, to decorate


1. Put the cracked ice cubes into a cocktail shaker.

2. Pour the brandy, lemon juice and sugar syrup over the ice and shake vigorously until a frost forms.

3. Strain into a chilled highball glass and top up with champagne. Decorate with the lemon twist.

    You can use standard Britannia cheese that you get in the super market.
