Cocktail Fridays: Janey’s Champagne Fizz

 

Cherry Champagne

This was apparently made up by American servicemen in the first world war when they fancied a Tom Collins.  They had gin and lemons but no soda – so they used Champagne instead (oh the HARDSHIP)! Don’t forget the obligatory cherry!

Recipe:

Ice and a glug of gin

squeeze of lemon

dribble of simple syrup

4 parts of chilled champagne

Method:

Putthe ice and then the gin in the cocktail shaker and add the lemon and syrup.  Shake it all well and then put into a chilled flute and then stir in the fizz …heaven ( and still easy after one or two make the world a little fuzzy….and it will!)
