The Friday Cocktail — French 75

French 75

While most of us are still staying at home, we thought that we’d highlight a new cocktail each Friday so we can all enjoy a little something special to kick off our weekend.

The French 75 is a cocktail held in such high esteem that it falls easily, though with the elegance and grace one would expect of a high-society French Madame, into the realm of a classic cocktail.

This drink is a tapestry of gin and bubbles, gracefully woven together to turn you into a carousing debauchee. The French 75 is one to turn to in times of celebration; to raise your glass and ring in the new year, the new baby, the new job, the new… teapot. Yep, that will do. It’s also a perfect cocktail to serve as an aperitif as the bubbles will help lift the mood in no time.

Notes

For a less combative drink, ease up on the gin. But that's not how we recommend it.
