Day 2 of the Champagne Cocktail Advent Calendar
is the FRENCH 75
An explosive Cocktail!
It is named after a French 75mm howitzer artillery piece which,
 like the drink, was known for it's kick.
2 oz. Brooklyn 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 a domestic sparkling wine, Gloria Ferrer Sonoma Brut.
