Ingredients

  • London dry gin 25ml
  • lemon juice 12.5ml
  • sugar syrup 12.5ml (make your own by dissolving 250g caster sugar in 250ml hot water)
  • Champagne
  • lemon peel to serve

Method

  • Step 1

    Put the first three ingredients in a shaker, fill with ice and shake hard, then strain into a flute and top with champagne. Using a zester or peeler, peel a long strip of lemon zest, being careful not to get too much pith. Twist over the flute to release the oils and drop into the glass.
