  • Summary

    The French 75 is a classic cocktail usually made with cognac, though gin is sometimes substituted, and that's the spirit I call for in this recipe. It typically isn't served as a punch but works quite well in this format. Serve this fresh, fragrant variation at any occasion that calls for toasting, like a brunch or a bridal or baby shower. A simple chunk of ice, such as one frozen in a loaf pan or bowl will suffice, but for a special, decorative touch, consider freezing orange wheels inside the ice.

    Ingredients

    • 16 ounces (2 cups) gin (preferably a London dry gin, such as Tanqueray)
    • 8 ounces (1 cup) freshly squeezed lemon juice
    • 6 ounces (3/4 cup) simple syrup
    • 1/2 teaspoon orange bitters
    • 32 ounces (4 cups) dry Champagne or other sparkling dry white wine, chilled
    • 1 large ice block or two smaller blocks
    • 8 orange wheels, for garnish
