French 75 Cocktail | An elegant drink with lemon, gin & champagne | MarlaMeridith ( @marlameridith )

Happy Friday everyone!! I’ve got a classic cocktail recipe for you today. The French 75 is a feisty drink made with gin, lemon juice, champagne,  splash of simple syrup & a lemon twist. It’s refined, elegant & daring. Throw in a few raspberries for color & fun.

Hope you all have a great weekend planned. I’ll be at the Telluride Jazz Festival soaking up the mountain sun, hanging with my besties & sipping these! xo
