First made in Paris in 1915 at the landmark Harry's New York Bar, this bubbly beverage uses champagne to give a fresh spin on gin. Remember: with any cocktail drink that includes champagne, be sure to mix all the ingredients first and then add the champagne just before serving.

  • Ice
  • 1.5 parts Bombay Sapphire Gin
  • 1⁄2 lemon
  • 1 sugar cube
  • Schramsberg Blanc de Blanc Champagne
  • Lemon twist

Preparation:

    Fill a clear glass with ice and pour 1.5 parts gin over the ice.

    Squeeze the juice of the 1⁄2 lemon into the glass.

    Transfer to a cocktail shaker, add the sugar cube and shake vigorously. Strain into a champagne flute and fill the flute to the top with champagne.

    Garnish with a lemon twist before serving.
