French 75


  • 2 shots (50ml) of Rose Gin by Tinkture 

  • 15ml fresh lemon juice 

  • 150g granulated sugar 

  • 150ml water 

  • Champagne 

  • Lots of ice 

  • A large bunch of thyme - keep back a sprig or two to garnish. 


First up the Thyme Syrup. Place sugar, water and thyme in a small saucepan and simmer until the sugar dissolves. Let this delicious mix bubble gently for a few minutes, then sieve to remove the thyme. 

Next fill a cocktail shaker with plenty of ice, the Thyme Syrup, lemon juice and a good measure of Rose Gin. Shake your shaker vigorously. When your arm tires strain the contents into an iced champagne glass, then top up with Champagne. Stir gently. Garnish with a sprig of thyme. 

Sip, while delicately extending your little finger, feel sophisticated, elegant and just a little bit French!
