Fill a shaker with ice cubes. Add Absolut Vodka, lemon juice and simple syrup. Shake and strain into a highball glass filled with crushed ice. Top up with champagne.
During World War 1, the Americans invented this drink to give champagne an extra kick. French 75 is named after the Howitzer artillery, said to be what really won the war. From the original recipe, we substitute gin for vodka and add it up to 76. Just as tasty and easy to mix.
