Son of a birch, it’s Monday! It is dark outside and the weekend is over. But stop for a minute and enjoy a drink with us.
The French 75 cocktail consists of champagne - very fresh! - gin, but also lemon juice and honey syrup. And, generally, you decorate your glass with a lemon peel and sometimes a candied cherry.
This cocktail is a bit of a Gin & Tonic revisited with lemon and champagne.
For the gin, we used in this recipe one of our most popular gins called Distilled Sun And Citrus, the special birch edition. The gin is diluted with only fresh birch sap (and not water) and is only made in a few numbers. Why birch sap? It adds wonderful fresh and sweet notes, and as a bonus it enhances the complex fragile flower layers in the original Sun and Citrus gin.Make yourself this refreshing French 75, and find something to celebrate even during dull days!
For a single drink:
2 cl freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 cl honey syrup
A lemon peel, for garnish
- Shake ice cold and strain to a chilled champagne flute.
- Top with your favourite bubbly.
- Garnish with a lemon peel.
