A native twist on the French 75

A native twist on the French 75

Champagne has marked many a celebration dating back to the 1800s - popping the cork is symbolic of cheerful occasions and overflowing glasses are a visual image of abundance and joy.  Make Friday night drinks a little festive with a native champagne cocktail.  Our variation of a cocktail created by Mikee Collins at Hospo Intel.  A twist on the classic Fresh 75 featuring a refreshingly sweet lemon myrtle syrup.
