The French 75 cocktail was concocted by a First World War flying ace who liked champagne but wanted something with an extra kick.


It can be made with cognac in place of the gin.


1 measure Greenall’s gin

Juice of half a lemon

1tsp caster sugar



Put the gin (or cognac), lemon juice and sugar into a champagne glass or, ideally, a champagne saucer. Stir well until the sugar has dissolved and then top up with champagne. The French 75 is complete.
