Greyhound 75

This recipe is a combination of 2 classics - a Greyhound and a French 75. The combination pairs beautifully with our Canadian Ice Wine truffle. Serve in flutes to show off the ombre/layered effect, or in coupes for a classic look. Makes 4 cocktails.

For cocktail:

  • 2oz lavender simple syrup
  • 4 oz Chambord
  • 4 oz grapefruit juice
  • 8-12 oz Champagne or your favourite sparkling wine

For Lavender simple syrup:

  • ½ cup white sugar
  • ½ cup water
  • 1 tsp lavender buds (fresh or dried)
  1. Combine lavender buds, white sugar and ½ cup water and bring to boil in a small pot.
  2. Strain and cool for at least 1 hr.
  3. Combine cooled lavender syrup and Chambord and pour into the bottom of champagne flutes.
  4. Slowly add 1 oz grapefruit juice to each flute (pouring down the side of the flute to avoid mixing the liquids and allowing layers/ombre to form).
  5. Top with champagne or sparkling wine.
  6. Garnish with a sprig of lavender or a fresh slice of grapefruit and pair with our Canadian Ice Wine truffle.
