French 75


French 75

The French 75 is a slight variation on a classic Tom Collins. Gin, citrus and sweetener but the key difference being a splash of Champagne to give it a spritz as opposed to a dash of sparkling water. Originally the French 75 called for a cognac but it is more commonly made with gin. A great citrusy, bubbly cocktail that I prefer to serve over ice in either a collins glass or wine glass.
