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.

Perfection!
This recipe opened a whole new door for me. I never thought of a cocktail as being so balanced in flavor. The salt and bitters elevate this cocktail to new heights.
