1. French 75

Prep: 5 mins
Serves: 1

Pour 1 tbsp lemon juice, 1 tsp sugar syrup and 50ml gin into a cocktail shaker then fill up with ice. Shake well then strain into a champagne flute. Top with a little champagne, leave to settle (as it will bubble up) then fill up with more champagne. Swirl gently with a cocktail stirrer then garnish with a strip of lemon zest if you like.

6. Champagne mojito

Prep: 5 mins
Serves: 1

Put a few ice cubes into a wine glass then hold 5 mint leaves in the palm of one hand and clap your other hand over it – this will bruise the leaves just enough without making them bitter. Drop the leaves into the glass then pour over 25ml rum, juice ½ lime, 1 tsp sugar syrup and a few dashes of Angostura bitters. Stir very gently then slowly top with champagne.
