If the French 75, which is usually based on gin or Cognac, is your jam, here’s a kinder, gentler alternative. The floral lilt of lavender syrup may even remind of the botanicals found in some gins.


¾ ounce lavender syrup (recipe below)
¾ ounce fresh lemon juice
4 ounces dry sparkling wine
Lemon twist (for garnish)


Combine lavender syrup and lemon juice in a Champagne flute. Top slowly with sparkling wine. Garnish with lemon twist.

Directions for the Lavender Syrup

In small saucepan, mix 1 cup sugar, 1 cup water and 1 ounce dried lavender. Simmer and stir for 3–4 minutes, until sugar is completely dissolved. Remove from heat. Let cool, and strain.
