I love a good gin cocktail above all else, so this recipe was destined to win my heart. Whoever thought of mixing gin with champagne was a smart man or woman, and I am forever in their debt.

Rim champagne flute with sugar, if you like that sort of thing. In a shaker half filled with ice, combine gin, sugar, and lemon juice, shaking well. Pour into a flute (or a collins glass, which I've read is also somewhat traditional) and top with champagne. Garnish with curly lemon peel.
