A saucy little cocktail i mixed up for the girls when they came over to swap clothes. I forgot to take a photo - i'll get one on the next serving. This was especially precious with a cluster of tiny frozen champagne grapes in the bottom of the glass as a garnish.
1/4 oz lemon juice (i've used lime with good effect)
dash of sugar syrup (or a small bar spoon o' bar sugar)
dash of grenadine (i leave this out if i want the grapes to be seen)
3/4 oz gin (i use Bombay Sapphire, my house 'well' gin)
Shake the first four ingredients over ice in a shaker. Strain into a cocktail class or a champagne flute, and fill with champagne.
Heather said "Hey, i can't taste the gin!" and then confirmed that that was, indeed, a good thing. Give that girl champagne, and she'll drink anything.Posted by shock on August 12, 2003 | TrackBack
