Bonne année!

Enjoy a French 75 cocktail to start your New Year's party off with a bang!  This potent cocktail was said to have such a kick that it was aptly named after the French 75mm field gun.  Simple, strong and bubbly, this classic champagne cocktail is the perfect drink to toast the New Year. Cheers!
-3 ounces gin
-3 ounces fresh lemon juice
-4 tsp granulated sugar
-1 1/2 cups ice 
-1 cup chilled champagne (Any kind works, but I prefer extra dry)
-lemon twists for garnish

1. In a cocktail shaker, combine gin, lemon juice, sugar and ice and shake
2. Strain cocktails into 2 champagne flutes and top off with champagne
3. Garnish with a lemon twist and enjoy!

Makes 2
