Combine gin, lemon juice, and sugar in a Champagne flute or wine glass. Stir. Top with Champagne and stir gently. Garnish with orange twist.
This classic sparkling cocktail is a high-powered brunch drink, harking back to the 75-millimeter cannon it’s named for. It’s quite a bit more boozy than a mimosa. If you prefer tequila over gin, the Jumping Jellybean also provides quite a kick.
