A classy cocktail with a story, using HDC Elk Rider Gin.

French 75

2 oz Elk Rider Gin

1 t super fine sugar

.5 oz lemon juice

5 oz Champagne

Fill shaker with ice and add Gin, sugar and lemon juice. Shake and pour into glass, top with Champagne. Garnish with lemon twist (A little back story on the The French 75: this cocktail has been popular since World War I. It was created at a bar in Paris in 1915 where, as glamorous as it looks, it was said to have the recoil of the historic French 75mm cannon. Be careful folks!)
