French 75 Champagne Cocktail –

The French 75 is a classic cocktail that combines champagne with gin, lemon juice and sugar to create a delicious sparkling sip.

French 75 was introduced as a cocktail during Prohibition in the 1920s and became famous when it was included in a popular book on cocktails in 1930. You can read the full story at

It’s important to note that gin and champagne go very well together, and you’ll love this classic.

If you like lemon cocktails, you can also try Vodka Gimlet or Last Word.

For gin, we usually use something neutral or citrus, like Gordon’s. You can also choose something more cheesy, but that can be very annoying in my opinion.

Champagne is not necessarily the most expensive bottle. You can go with Brutus or something soft if you want. I already switched the prosecco and the cava. It changes the cocktail, but it’s perfectly acceptable. Try a few different sparkling wines to find your weak spot. Just make sure it’s properly cooled.

Another variation of this cocktail that is also very good is to use cognac instead of gin. Also very good!

★★★★★★★★★ You can get this liqueur and many others delivered to your door with Sauce ($5 off your first order + free shipping with the SAS code) or Drizly ($5 off your first order of $20+ at this link). Valid only in certain states ☺.

How to do French 75

Mix the first three ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake it vigorously for 20 seconds until it’s super cold. Then you stretch it out in a flute glass.

Add a little champagne. Add a little lemon. It’s done.
