A friend in the Science Fiction convention space taught me this cocktail recipe from the 1920s. Think flapper dresses and the Great Gatsby when you make one.


  • 2 oz Gin
  • 3/4 oz Lemon Juice
  • 3/4 oz Simple Syrup
  • 2 oz Champagne or Proseco
  • Long spiraled lemon twist or orange twist


  1. In a shaker combine Gin, Lemon Juice, Simple Syrup, Ice and shake the hell out of it.
  2. Pour into a champagne flute and top with Champagne or Proseco.
