French 75, Ginger Cranberry Fizz - Drink Recipes

An Art of it's Own

We met Christine recently and she loves all things food and drink. She gave us some great drinks for us to try and we wanted to share them with all of you. Enjoy!

French 75
1 oz. gin
½ oz. simple syrup
½ oz lemon juice
1 oz. champagne, cava, or prosecco

Combine the gin, simple syrup, and lemon juice in a shaker filled with ice.
Shake until well chilled and pour into a champagne flute approximately halfway up.
Top with champagne and enjoy!

(Note – you can buy simple syrup or make it yourself. Boil 2 parts white sugar to 1 part water.
Stir. Cool and refrigerate. It truly is simple to make!)

Ginger Cranberry Fizz

(alcohol-free cocktail)
2 oz. ginger beer (This is similar to ginger ale but has a stronger ginger flavor.)
1 oz. pure cranberry juice
Splash of lime juice
White sugar
Run a slice of lime around the rim of a glass. Pour some white sugar onto a plate and dip the
glass into the sugar to create a sugar-rimmed glass. Add the ginger beer, cranberry juice, and a splash of lime juice into the glass and stir. Add ice if desired.
This makes a tart and refreshingly elegant drink. Cheers!
