Friday Cocktail - French 75

FRENCH 75 Recipe at
Been listening to a lot of Serge Gainsbourg lately:

So, even though the 75 in the French 75 comes from 75 millimeter guns used by the French in WWI, it seemed fitting to make the French 75 the Friday Cocktail.

Place 8 coupe glasses or Champagne flutes in freezer and chill at least 2 hours. Place 1 cup ice, 1/4 cup gin, 2 tablespoons lemon juice, and 3 tablespoons simple syrup in cocktail shaker. Shake well, then strain into 2 chilled glasses or flutes. Repeat 3 more times with remaining ice cubes, gin, lemon juice, and simple syrup to make 6 more drinks. Divide Champagne among glasses and serve.
