Its bourgeois name takes us to Marie-Antoinette's gardens. A charming cocktail made from champagne and white wines to be enjoyed in glasses and not flutes, even more chic!

Ingredients: 1 bottle of white wine + 1 bottle of champagne + lime and lime + sugar.

Recipe: Marinate wine, lemon juice and sugar 24 hours in advance. Just before serving, add the lime cut into small pieces and the champagne. A delight, to be served very fresh and in moderation. This nice cocktail might well be a little treacherous!
