Bubbly French 75

New Year's celebration might be over but that doesn't stop me from getting bubbly, french 75 that is. In my book, anything with lime in a cocktail is definitely a go. While most people prefer blueberry or blood orange, I like mine a classic.

French 75

1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 tablespoon powdered sugar

2 ounces gin

3 ounces plus 1 tablespoon chilled Champagne

lemon peel for garnish

In cocktail shaker, combine lemon juice, sugar, gin, and ice cubes and shake to chill. Strain cocktail into Champagne flute and top off with Champagne. Garnish with lemon peel and serve.
