    Really liked this cocktail. We were closer to half champagne in the ratio. I guess we are boozers as we didn't find the drinks to be to big as some other reviewers. I do agree, don't waste good champagne. A $7.99 bottle of Trader Joe's brut worked just fine.

    This makes a huge batch. I wouldn't use her ratios for the champagne, rather I'd do individual ratios of 1 simple syrup: 1 cognac: 0.75 lemon juice, then top with champagne to your liking. I recommend a ratio of 4oz of champagne to 1 oz of cognac, but I like a stronger cognac flavor. This ratio is unusually sweet.

    Very good version of this drink. Makes large drinks (as usual for Ina) but not soooo large. My glasses weren't 2/3 full so my ratio may have been off, but they tasted great. You won't use all the champagne (and really good champagne is wasted here).

    We first had a French 75 at it's birthplace in New Orleans. It was fabulous. So, we decided to try making one at home. The first few recipes we tried weren't great. This one was. We've actually made it a couple of times now and absolutely love it.
