I’ve decided on the perfect description for this #champagnewednesday thing: “It’s like a tiny Christmas, covered in bubbles.” I think that pretty adequately sums things up.
This week’s cocktail is called the “French 75″–a pretty potent blend of gin, lemon and sparkling wine. We used Meyer lemon and cava in ours. It was good, seriously potent, but I think I’d make a few swaps next time, namely that instead of lemon juice and powdered sugar, I’d make a lemon simple syrup. Also, a bit of ginger. I feel kind of ginger-y these days.
