Rabbit Hole Distillery
The French 75 is named after the fully automatic 75 millimeter machine gun used by the French during World War One. This refreshing cocktail, made with Bespoke gin, fresh squeezed lemon juice, simple syrup and French Champagne shares no hardened battle stories as the weapon it was named for.

3 ounces French Champagne
1/2 ounce freshly squeezed lemon juice
Lemon wedge or twist (garnish)
1/2 ounce of simple syrup (bonus recipe in notes below)

Strain into a Champagne flute or glass
Top with French Champagne.
Garnish with a lemon wedge or twist.
