Faux 75

  • SERVINGS: Makes 1 drink

Mixologist Julie Reiner created this riff on the classic French 75 by removing the gin and replacing the Champagne with a bitter lemon soda.

  1. Ice
  2. 1 ounce fresh lemon juice
  3. 1 ounce Simple Syrup
  4. 3 ounces chilled bitter lemon soda
  5. 1 lemon twist, for garnish
  1. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the lemon juice and Simple Syrup and shake well. Strain into a chilled flute, top with the bitter lemon soda and garnish with the twist.
