Midnight in Paris Cocktail

This raven-hued cocktail pays homage to Woody Allen’s eponymous film, Midnight in Paris, and puts a striking spin on the class French 75. 

Created at the New York Bar in Paris, this inspired cocktail is about as French as the characters in Allen’s romantic comedy, which is up for an Oscar at this year's Academy Awards.


1 1/4 ounce dry gin

1/4 ounce simple syrup

1/4 ounce fresh lemon juice

1/4 ounce black currant or other dark juice

Champagne, or other dry sparkling white wine

Lemon twist, garnish


In a cocktail shaker filled with ice, combine the gin, juices, and simple syrup. Shake vigorously and strain into chilled flute of champagne. Garnish with a twist of lemon.
