This fabulous French 75 champagne cocktail is the perfect compliment to a wedding full of bold citrus colors and stylish geometric details. Inspired by fresh summer colors and the crisp midcentury-modern design of Palm Springs, I created an inspiration board and palette I think you'll find perfect for your summer fete!

This classic champagne cocktail kicks it up a notch with the addition of gin and a hint of lemon. This bright and delicious recipe is right at home anytime of year but is especially refreshing as the summer months heat up. The DIY geometric gold stirrer adds a festive, modern and glamorous touch to a summer wedding.
