The origins of the French 75 (or soixante-quinze) are, like a night out on the classic combination of Champagne and gin with a twist of lemon, a little muddled. Most stories put its beginnings in the 1920s, as perhaps a livelier incarnation of a Tom Collins (gin, soda water and lemon juice). This recipe is somewhere in between the two, with both Champagne and soda water invited to the party. The result is a little softer and less boozy, able to be sipped all afternoon.
This is a fun, grown-up jelly which you can make quirky by adding home-made jetplane gummies or sophisticated by using fresh summer fruit. We made a few of each but you could stick to just one.
