This was good but I would shake it with ice and then serve it straight up next time.

Lovely cocktail, bright and delicious. The gin plays quite well with the other ingrediants.

I like this tangy lemony and POTENT cocktail very cold! I suggest you shake the lemon juice, sugar, and gin (or Cognac) with ice, and then strain into a chilled Champagne flute or highball glass full of fresh cracked ice; top off with chilled Champagne. I also upped the gin and lemon juice ever so slightly (if you make the Cognac version you may want to up the sugar slightly, as well). Otherwise, made as written. This is a wonderful cocktail for New Years, or for summer sipping. Great! Thanks Julie B's Hive!
