This French 75 Classic Champagne Cocktail is made with champagne, lemon, gin, and Cointreau.  This is my favorite champagne cocktail.  Use a bottle of good champagne and a top-shelf gin for this cocktail.

For a twist use a bottle of pink champagne.



  • 1/2 oz lemon juice fresh squeezed
  • 1 oz gin top-shelf
  • 1/2 oz Cointreau
  • 2 oz champagne good quality


  1. Combine lemon juice, Gin and Cointreau in a cocktail shaker filled with ice cubes. 

  2. Shake well, then pour into a champagne flute. 

  3. Fill the flute with champagne and garnish with a lemon twist.

Recipe Notes


Feel free to substitute Cognac if you don't have Cointreau.
