Empress 75 (Empress Gin’s take on the French 75) Recipe

Empress 75 (Empress Gin’s take on the French 75)

Serves 1
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


  1. 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.
  2. Bartender’s Tip:
  3. For a fun garnish, use a lemon stripper to make an extra-long twist (6-8”) then coil it in the glass.
