  1. In a flute or Collins glass add the gin.
  2. Top with a half flute of sparkling wine or champagne.
  3. Add sugar (it will fizz up so make sure the flute isn't full yet) then top off with more sparkling wine.


Combine sugar, lemon juice, and gin in a shaker full of ice. Shake well, then pour into a tall glass and top with champagne. (If possible, ice the glass ahead of time.)
