A French 69 is a remix of the French 75 (gin, lemon, proseco) and adds elderflower liquer. It's a very light and refreshing drink. If you've never had elderflower, don't let the name hold you back from trying this wonderful liquer.
- Elderflower Liquer ~ 2 shots
- On a budget: Bols Elderflower Liqueur 750mL ($12-$18)
- Ballin' out: Saint Germain Elderflower Liquer 750mL ($38-$52)
- Gin ~ 2 shots
- 4 Lemons
- 4 Champagne flutes
- Simple syrup
Step 1. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice
Step 2. Cut and juice the lemons
Add the lemon juice directly to the cocktail shaker.
Step 3. Add the booze
Add 2 shots of gin and 2 shots of elderflower liquer.
Optionally, add two shots of simple syrup. Here I got lazy and just added brown sugar to the cocktail shaker.
Step 4. SHAKE!!!
Preferably over the kitchen sink just in case the cocktail shaker leaks.
