Lemon Champagne Cocktail

Day 319

Lemon Champagne Cocktail
1 shot out of 5

One more day, one more day until New Years Eve!  We've been running errands and picking up the Christmas toy explosion that happened here, all day long!  Time for a cocktail and some dinner....yes we're eating late.  I am sticking with another recipe from for tonight's cocktail.

I gave tonight's cocktail 1 shot out of 5.  WOW, I really didn't like this cocktail and either did my husband.  Some sips make me react with full on convulsions........and some not as dramatic, but still make me squinch up my eyes and face.  I don't use gin a whole lot, so I was really hoping that this cocktail would be a winner.  Oh well, one more champagne cocktail to go before the New Years Eve countdown, let's hope it's a winner!!  I'm going to post it earlier tomorrow just in case it's a good one so that it can be an option for you all.

Here is the recipe for a Lemon Champagne Cocktail:

  • 4 oz champagne
  • 1 oz gin
  • 1/2 oz lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 tsp superfine sugar
In a champagne flute add all of your ingredients except the sugar.  Give it a quick stir and then add your sugar.  You want to stir your cocktail until your sugar is gone.  Stir it well, but you will want to stop part of the way through to let you cocktail settle, and then continue stirring.

Here is a photo of the end result:

Here's to a 1 shot rating.......haven't had one of those in a while!
