Romantic French 75

After Cinq Chicago’s Speakeasy event, I fell in love with the French 75 cocktail. Now, if I can’t have a straight glass of wine, I undoubtedly ask the bartender for a French 75 next. To make things a bit more fun this afternoon, I decided to create a Romantic French 75 I could enjoy with one of my girlfriends before a late lunch. If there is any left, you can have some too, Dan J. To make this cocktail romantic, I used a sparkling rosé instead of a traditional bottle of sparkling wine, giving the cocktail its perfect shade of pink. Recipe makes about 8 cocktails

1 bottle sparkling rosé
Juice of 2 lemons
8 oz. good gin
Sanding sugar--for rim of glass
(Recipe makes about 8 cocktails)
