English sparkling wine is suddenly all the rage with wine experts and enthusiasts alike. But it's been bubbling up for the last 30-40 years, spearheaded by the leading English sparkler (and apparently the royal family's fave), Chapel Down. I sat down with head wine maker Josh Donaghay-Spire while he was in town recently, and we chatted about the exciting category of English sparkling wine. 

This week's cocktail recipe is an English winemaker’s twist on the classic French 75...

English 75
1.5 oz of London Dry Gin
.5 oz lemon juice
.5 oz simple syrup
Chapel Down Brut

Shake the gin, lemon juice and simple syrup over ice. Strain into a chilled flute or coupe glass, and top with Chapel Down Brut.
