Pink French 75
Even if you don’t care for Valentine’s Day, it’s always nice to have a reason to sip on something bubbly. The French 75 is an iconic cocktail, but we’ve reworked this one slightly to make it a little more romantic. It takes almost no time to prepare and is a great recipe to know off by heart.
Preparation time: 5 minutes
½ C (125 ml) pink gin
¼ C (60 ml) freshly squeezed grapefruit juice
4 tsp (60 ml) sugar
champagne or sparkling wine, to top up
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake the gin, grapefruit juice and sugar in the shaker until well chilled, about 15 seconds. Strain into a Champagne coupe.
Top up with Champagne or sparkling wine.
