When I think brunch I think of course about le Canon de 75 modèle 1897. Don't you? I also think about how long the line is going to be over at Lula Cafe on a Saturday morning. After mulling it over and deciding to stay home I make sure have eggs, bacon, and a bottle of bubbles in the fridge. I put on my favorite French record (Human After All by DaftPunk) and start making French 75s.
The French 75 at the simplest form is a Tom Collins with Champagne instead of charged water. I say that you must use Champagne and well...you have to. No ifs ands or buts about it. You may say I have fallen to some of the best marketing in the world but Cava or California sparkling is just not going to cut it here. It is an ingredient and a crucial one. So same method as the Tom Collins with a bit of a different build. Oh and put it in a Collins glass with ice. Also if it is just you at home call your neighbor over for the prime time of their life also.
In a cobbler shaker:
45 ml Frozen Gin
15 ml Lemon Juice
5 ml Simple Syrup
Quick shake with a couple of ice cubes.
Strain drink over fresh ice in a collins glass.
Pour fresh Champagne slowly over the top.
Garnish with a lemon twist.
Enjoy! These pack a punch.
