A half-teaspoon of a saltwater solution—and Angostura bitters—give exceptional balance to this slight tweak on the classic French 75. We liked the clean flavors that resulted from almost-equal proportions of gin and sparkling wine. To prepare the saltwater solution, combine half a teaspoon of Diamond Crystal kosher salt and 6 tablespoons plus 1 teaspoon water.

3/4 ounce lemon juice
3/4 ounce simple syrup
1/2 teaspoon 4-percent saltwater solution
