  • 1 oz gin
  • 1/2 oz lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz simple syrup

  • 3 oz champagne*
  • lemon twist to garnish


  • Place gin, lemon juice, and simple syrup in a cocktail shaker with ice and shake vigorously until outside of shaker is very cold (approximately 15 seconds)
  • Strain into a champagne flute and top with champagne

*You can use champagne or sparkling wine for this recipe. I recommend using a sweeter champagne or sparkling wine, like Prosecco or Asti. Brut is also a great option for those who'd prefer a dryer champagne.
