Step by Step Method

Step 1

For the sugar syrup, put the caster sugar in a small non-stick saucepan over a medium heat and pour in the water. Stir and bring to the boil. CAUTION: boiling sugar is extremely hot. Handle very carefully. Use a deep pan to avoid bubbling over.

Step 2

Once the sugar has dissolved and the liquid is clear, take the pan off the heat and leave to cool.

Step 3

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Pour 2 teaspoons of the cooled sugar syrup over the ice along with the gin and lemon juice. Shake vigorously for 8-10 seconds.

Step 4

Strain the mixture into a flute using a cocktail strainer and a fine mesh strainer. If you don’t have a strainer, any kitchen sieve will work just as well.

Step 5

Top up with the champagne and stir gently to mix the drink. Garnish the French 75 with a lemon twist if using.
