The Tenderblender Liquid Christmas Countdown

Today is the 1st of december and I will start my personal liquid christmas countdown until Santa knocks on your door. Every day I will present a cocktail or a certain spirit, sometimes related to the special day, an event or just because I like it.

 

Literally my kick-off will be one of my favourite champagne cocktails:

French 75

50 ml Dry Gin

25 ml Lemon Juice

15 ml Simple Syrup

top up with champagne

The Drink got first mentioned in the 1930 in The Savoy Cocktail Book by Harry Craddock.  The Name derives from a french 75mm field gun in WW1. And it is  supposed to be as powerful.
