Notes

This recipe makes one cocktail. If you are serving guests, you can scale up the gin, lemon and cranberry syrup mixture in advance. Just pre-mix it and throw it in the fridge. Top with cold champagne just before serving.
No need to open the fancy champagne when you are using it in a cocktail. Save the expensive stuff for appreciating on its own!
