Empress 75 (Empress Gin’s take on the French 75) Recipe
Empress 75 (Empress Gin’s take on the French 75)
The French 75 is a classic. We’ve updated it by using Empress Gin 1908, which is a beautiful blue in the bottle. After the addition of the acid to the drink, it will turn a pretty pink.
- 1 1/2 oz Empress Gin 1908
- 3/4 oz fresh lemon juice
- 1/2 oz simple syrup
- Chilled Champagne or sparkling wine
- Optional garnish:
- lemon twist
- Shake the lemon and simple syrup with ice. Strain into a chilled champagne glass. Add the Champagne or sparkling wine, and top with the gin. Garnish with a lemon twist.
- Bartender’s Tip:
- For a fun garnish, use a lemon stripper to make an extra-long twist (6-8”) then coil it in the glass.
