The Vermont 75


This New England variation on the famous French 75 kicks this classic up a notch. Begin with 3 ounces of Juniper Green Gin and 1 ounce of lemon juice in a shaker with ice. Add 1/2 teaspoon of maple syrup, or more, to taste. Shake and pour into a highball glass. Top with a dry, sparkling hard apple cider. Stir and garnish with a lemon wedge and a sprig of mint.
