For this episode of “Shaken not Stirred” we bring you the newly re-opened Mercure Box Hill Burford Bridge Hotel’s take on the classic French 75. The pink hue comes from a little dash of grenadine and is to honour the Mercure colours. So easy to make, just add the cognac, lemon juice, syrup and grenadine to an ice filled cocktail shaker and mix well. Double strain into a chilled and frosted glass top with champagne and garnish with a wedge of lime.
You will need:
- 85ml champagne
- 30ml cognac
- 15ml lime juice
- 15ml simple syrup
- a dash of grenadine for colour
Enjoy this cocktail while Édith Piaf serenades with Non, je ne regrette rien.
