st. germain french 75

in CB this year we had the best cocktail! here is the best recipe i've been able to recreate! the trick may be the fact that i have an amazing simple syrup maker of a hubby too!

St. Germain French 75stir together over ice:

2 ounces gin (Hendricks has a great note that pairs well with the elderflower)
2 ounces St. Germain (no substituting is a liqueur made of elderflower blossoms hand picked with love in France)
1/2 ounce fresh lemon juice
1/2 ounce simple syrup

Strain into glass with ice & top with 2-3 ounces of sparkling wine/champagne
