Bitter French

from Death & Co

  • 1 ounce Plymouth Gin
  • .25 ounce Campari
  • .5 ounce Lemon Juice
  • .5 ounce Simple Syrup
  • Dry Champagne
  • Grapefruit Peel

Shake all the ingredients (except the champagne and grapefruit twist) with ice, then strain into a flute. Top with champagne. Squeeze the grapefruit twist over the drink and discard. No garnish.

PHIL WARD, 2008 In my opinion, this French 75 variation is the best beginner Campari drink in history.—PW
