Make this easy version of a French 75 with champagne sugar cubes

To make this effortless French 75 you’ll need Teaspressa LUXE flavored sugar cubes in lemon, your favorite bottle of bubbly, gin, and a lemon.

The lovely ladies at Hoskins in the Flat introduced me to champagne sugar cubes, and I am officially obsessed. These little cubes of delight are simple sugar flavored with all sorts of delectable tastes from lemon to raspberry and rose to vanilla. You can drop them in tea, coffee, or champagne to add a little something extra to your beverage or completely elevate the taste.

I adore a French 75 cocktail — a simple drink that is tart but sweet and very refreshing. It is usually my go to cocktail when visiting a bar. Surprisingly, I’ve never attempted to make it at home mostly because I never have simple syrup on hand, but that is why these sugar cubes are so perfect! Just drop one in and let it dissolve in the fizz.

Effortless French 75 Champagne Cocktail Recipe

Makes 1

1 oz Gin

2-3 oz Champagne

1 tsp Lemon juice

1 LUXE champagne sugar cube

To Make

Chill your bottle of champagne until cool. Place sugar cube in champagne coupe then pour in gin and lemon juice. I like my cocktails tart so I add in the lemon juice, but if you prefer the drink more sweet leave it out. Stir this up a bit with a spoon and top with bubbly.

Let the drink sit for a few minutes so the sugar cube starts to melt. Gently stir again. Shave a bit of lemon rind for garnish and enjoy!
