No major holiday celebration would be complete without a little bubbly, and J. Black's Feel Good Kitchen & Lounge has concocted a fantastic cocktail for the holidays to get everyone in the right state of mind. Just a touch of St. Germain elderflower liqueur gives the classic French 75 cocktail a bit more complexity.
- 1 fl oz Hendrick's gin
- ½ fl oz St. Germain
- 1 ½ fl oz simple syrup
- ¾ fl oz freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 5 fl oz Champagne
- Lemon twist, for garnish
1. In a cocktail shaker, combine the gin, St. Germain, simple syrup, and lemon juice with ice.
2. Shake and strain into a martini glass and top with champagne.
3. Garnish with a lemon twist, first twisting it over the glass to release the oils into the drink.
