  1. Decorate a Champagne flute by spraying with glitter spray.
  2. Put the gin, grapefruit juice and vanilla syrup in a cocktail shaker and top up with ice cubes. Shake, then strain into your glass.
  3. Top with the crémant and garnish with a twist of zest.  

Tip:Use a peeler to cut a long piece of grapefruit zest. Trim the edges with a knife or pinking shears to get a jagged edge. If you want a slightly weaker version, add a glug of grapefruit juice.
