Ah, champagne cocktails. They’re both delicious and versatile. Enjoy them over brunch, during a New Year’s Eve celebration, at weddings, or even during a quietly romantic dinner at home. Champagne cocktails also tend to involve just a few key ingredients, making them super easy to put together on short notice. This recipe is a spin on the classic French 75 cocktail recipe – but with delicious sparkling Rosé instead of classic champagne and a bit of raspberry syrup for some extra flavor. It’s sweet, sparkling, smooth, and the most lovely shade of pale pink. I call it the Rosé 75! You can find the full recipe below – and check out the shopping guide on eBay right here!
1 oz Dry Gin
1/2 oz Lemon Juice
1/2 oz Raspberry Syrup
3 oz Rosé Sparkling Wine
Simple syrup is an essential ingredient in many cocktails, but especially in champagne and sparkling wine cocktail recipes. In this Rosé 75, the raspberry simple syrup help balances the dryness of the gin and sparkling wine.
Simple syrup is easy to make at home by melting 1 cup of sugar in 1 cup of water, but I like to add a bit of extra flavor into my recipes with flavored syrups. Raspberry syrup was a popular ingredient in pre-Prohibition cocktail recipes – and is a fantastic addition to a Rosé 75!
Just a few ingredients – and so easy to make! Make a bunch for a Girls Night In, or for brunch with friends. Enjoy these lovely pink drinks any time of year!
