Air Mail Champagne Cocktail
I saw this on “The Kitchen” where Geoffrey Zakarian made this as his “5 o’clock somewhere” segment. Given it was New Years Eve and I knew Champagne was going to be play, I decided to give this one a try.
Champagne isn’t my bag really, so diluting it in Gin made perfect sense to me. The lemon juice add a brightness and the floral notes of Hendricks Gin made it an easy drink. I could see these getting people in all sorts of trouble.
Ingredients ( 2 cocktails)
1 oz Fresh Lemon Juice (about 1 lemon)
4 oz of Hendricks Gin
Top with Champagne
Shake your Gin and lemon juice in ice for about 40 shakes. Pour into a champagne glass and top it off.
