July 14th marks France's national day - or fête nationale - otherwise known as Bastille Day. We're naturally very happy that this gives us the perfect excuse to crack out one of our favourite gin cocktails - the gorgeously refreshing and bubbly French 75.
Even better, this is one of Hernö Gin's favourites too and we can confirm this recipe works beautifully with our July Gin of the Month. Santé!
30ml Hernö Gin
15ml lemon juice
15ml simple syrup*
Champagne (or other sparkling wine)
Add all the ingredients to a cocktail shaker and fill with ice. Shake for about five seconds. Strain into a champagne flute and top with ice cold Champagne or sparkling wine) for one of the best ways to kick off a dinner.
*Simple Syrup - warm equal parts of sugar and water so it dissolves then let it cool. Can be stored, sealed, in the fridge for 4-6 months.
