Day 2 of the Champagne Cocktail Advent Calendar 

The FRENCH 75

It is named after a French 75mm howitzer artillery piece which, like the drink, was known for it's kick.

 
2 oz. BLUECOAT American Dry GIN 

.5 oz fresh lemon juice 

1 t. superfine sugar
Shake well with cracked ice in a chilled cocktail shaker

then strain into a Collins glass half-full of cracked ice

and top off with champagne.
 

 A Votre Sante!
