Seasonal 75

A refreshing summer take on our cities’ famous French 75, this recipe was created by Sac-a-Lait‘s head bartender Norton Christopher and featured in Wine Enthusiast.

2 oz gin, preferably Euphrosine #9
.75 oz blueberry syrup (recipe below)
• .75 oz freshly squeezed lemon juice
• 3 dashes El Guapo® Summer Berries bitters
• Cava, to top
• Lemon twist, for garnish

In a shaker filled with ice, combine gin, syrup, juice and bitters. Shake well, then strain into flute. Top with Cava. Garnish with lemon twist before serving.

Blueberry Syrup

  • 1 cup fresh blueberries
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ½ cup water

Place ingredients in pot with water and cook on medium-low heat, stirring until sugar dissolves. Reduce heat to low, and simmer until syrupy, about 15 minutes. Let mixture cool, then purée and strain. If mixture becomes too thick to pour, thin with basic simple syrup (equal parts sugar and water). Extra syrup will keep refrigerated for up to two weeks.
