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.
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.
