French 75 & Sarkozy 75: Cupboard Cocktails

The French 75 is one of the all time classic Champagne cocktails, although perhaps we should nickname our version the ‘Italian 75’ since it uses Prosecco and Due Sorrelle Gin.

They’re stronger than they taste and can be deadly, so it’s only fitting that we have an alcohol-free version (named after France’s teetotal former president) if you want to keep your wits about you.  Just substitute gin for an alcohol free alternative like Caleño, and switch the Prosecco for Noughty.


  • 25ml Gin/Caleño
  • 12.5ml Lemon Juice
  • 1 tsp sugar syrup/icing sugar
  • Prosecco/Noughty


  1. Shake all but the bubbles with ice and strain into coupette or flute glass
  2. Top up with Prosecco/Noughty
  3. Garnish with a strip of lemon zest, expressing the oils over the drink and glass
