What you need:

  • 2 oz London dry style gin (I like Hendrick’s Midsummer Solstice)
  • 0.5 oz lemon juice
  • 0.5 oz simple syrup
  • 2-3 oz Brut Champagne (or other sparkling wine)
  • Lemon twist
  • Ice
  • A cocktail shaker

Do This:

  • Put gin, lemon juice, and simple syrup in the cocktail shaker
  • Fill shaker with ice
  • Cover and shake the heck out of it until the outside of the shaker is cold
  • Strain into a champagne glass. Or drink it out of a Solo cup; I don’t judge.
  • Top with champagne
  • Garnish with lemon twist
  • Drink responsibly.
