If you are after an easy, but still quite boozy glass of cocktail bliss, then you really can’t go past a Champagne Smash. With Gin, Lillet Rose, Mint, Lemon slice & Champagne, this is a drink is the ideal bubbly perfection for any occasion.
In a shaker, muddle a nice slice of lemon and a couple of sprigs of mint. Add ice, gin and Lillet Rosé. Shake for 15 seconds or so to get it good and cold. Strain into a highball glass with ice, then top with champagne.
