Best served ice cold, the French 75 is a classic cocktail that is perfect for the late summer. We call this one the "French 75 in the Garden" because its ingredients are an homage to the fresh flavors of summer. Using our garden-to-glass Cold Distilled Cucumber Vodka (best kept in the freezer for optimum enjoyment!), the crisp, refreshing flavors are sure to cool you down.

Makes one cocktail

2 basil leaves
1 tsp sugar
1 lime wedge
1 lemon wedge
1.5 oz Durham Distillery Cold Distilled Cucumber Vodka
2.5 oz prosecco

In a shaker, muddle 2 basil leaves with 1 tsp sugar, 1 lime wedge, and 1 lemon wedge.

Add ice and 1.5 oz vodka to shaker and shake until sides get cold.

Double strain into a champagne flute and top with 2.5 oz prosecco.
