Mother's Day Gin French 75 Cocktails Home Bar Drinks Booze

Happy weekend, and welcome back to 3-Ingredient Happy Hour, the weekly drink column featuring super simple yet delicious libations. This week we’re making a sparkling cocktail perfect for Mother’s Day or, you know, any Sunday really: the French 75.

Technically, the French 75 is a four-ingredient cocktail, and contains gin, lemon juice, simple syrup (or a sugar cube), and champagne. Here we streamline things a bit by using lemonade which is, after all, lemon juice and sugar water. In terms of bubbles, keep things on the dry side, but feel free to use any kind of sparkling wine, be that Champagne, prosecco, or cava. You could even use sparkling rosé—with pink lemonade??—to make things extra rosy for Mom (or yourself). To make this drink, you will need:

  • 1 1/2 ounces gin
  • 1 ounce lemonade (try pink!)
  • Sparkling wine of your choice

Pour the gin and lemonade in a flute and give it a little stir. Top with chilled sparkling wine, and enjoy with a fancy brunch.
