Now we may have switched the number to reflect navy's abv of 57.1% but make no mistake, the abv is higher than that of the original French 75. A fantastically delicious sparkling cocktail that classically uses London dry gin, our navy strength works here beautifully thanks to the added sea salt post-distillation. The marriage of the citrus and the slight salinity of the gin makes this decadent drink very quaffable and right up their in the abv stakes! A great cocktail for a special occasion and fairly simple to make.
Champagne being the french element of the French 75, prosecco actually works equally well and with prosecco proving incredibly popular in the UK (Britain was the biggest consumer of prosecco globally in 2017) and sales of UK based sparkling wines on the rise, this drink is the perfect spritz serve.
45ml Portobello Road Navy Strength Gin
15ml Lemon juice
15ml Sugar Syrup
Add all ingredients except the prosecco in to an ice filled cocktail shaker and shake well. Fine strain into a chilled flute glass and top up with the prosecco. Garnish with a twist of lemon.
