This Sunday marks the 75th anniversary of the Golden Gate Bridge. To honor the occasion, our friend and fellow San Franciscan, Camper English, created The Golden Gate 75. A riff on the classic French 75, Camper replaces the Gin and Lemon for Campari and Orange Juice, giving the cocktail the same hue as the famous span.

- 2.5 ounces California Sparkling Wine
- 1 ounce Campari
- 1 ounce Blood Orange Juice (Or substitute regular orange juice)
- 0.5 ounces Rich Simple Syrup*
- 1 dash Orange Bitters (Regan's Orange Bitters No. 6 recommended)
- Orange peel for garnish
Directions: Blood orange juice helps turn this cocktail a color resembling the Golden Gate Bridge, celebrating its 75th birthday this year. Add Campari, orange juice, simple syrup, and bitters to an ice-filled shaker. Shake and fine strain (to remove any pulp) into a champagne flute or coupe. Top with sparkling wine. Zest the orange peel over the top of the drink and drop the peel in the drink or discard.
*Rich Simple Syrup: Heat 2 parts sugar to one part water and stir until dissolved. Store covered in the refrigerator between uses. Depending on the sweetness of sparkling wine used, you may use less simple syrup.
