Feeling a little parched during brunch? The French 75 is a sparkling cocktail that’s perfect before, during and after your egg and bacon sandwich. And with the option of rum or gin, this is one classic you’ll want to rediscover again and again.
Add all the ingredients except the Champagne to a shaker and fill with ice.
Shake well and strain into a Champagne flute.
Top with the Champagne and garnish with a lemon twist.

I use 1/2 brandy or cognac and 1/2 gin. Delish!! I tried the brown sugar too, but I think the syrup is easier to deal with.
I like how you think robw! I had a cocktail similar to your alternative recipe at magnolias in charleston, sc. AMAZING!! :)
Here is a great variation. Brown sugar cube, 5 drops of bitters at bottom of the champagne flute. Shake 1/2 tsp Grand Marnier, 1 tsp armagnac or cognac over ice cubes. Lemon twist (I prefer Meyer Lemon). Strain and pour over the sugar cube. Add champagne, and the lemon twist.
This is the cocktail I've missed my whole life.
