Purple French 75

A simple, refreshing classic cocktail. Sure you can use any other gin, but Empress makes it pretty. And we are all about making things pretty!

Ingredients:

  1. 1.5 oz Empress Gin

  2. 1 ounce fresh squeezed lemon juice

  3. 1 ounce simple syrup (recipe below)

  4. champagne (or any sparkling wine, I used cava)

Instructions:


  1. Make simple syrup by mixing one part sugar with one part water (I did one cup of each) and heating in a pot until syrupy. Heat over medium high heat. It should take about 15-20 minutes. Let this cool and put in a sealed container. Keep it in your refrigerator and it should stay fresh for several weeks.

  2. Add the first three ingredients to a shaker filled half way with ice.

  3. Shake vigorously for 30 seconds.

  4. Pour into a champagne flute or coupe then top with champagne.

  5. Cheers!
