The Bitter Frenchman

The Bitter FrenchmanSomething different for Mardi Gras
This Bitter Frenchman cocktail is a spin on last week’s feature, The French 75—but the addition of Campari gives it an entirely different taste profile.

1 ounce London dry-style gin
1/2 ounce Campari
1/2 ounce simple syrup
1/4 ounce lemon juice
Dry Champagne (or other dry sparkling wine)

Put the first four ingredients (gin, Campari, simple syrup and lemon juice) in a shaker, and shake with ice until chilled. Strain into a coupe or Champagne flute, and top with the Champagne.
