The Naught French 75
The French 75 is a classic cocktail that exudes elegance and refinement. This timeless concoction combines the zesty brightness of gin, the tangy allure of fresh lemon juice, and a touch of simple syrup for a delicate sweetness. What sets the French 75 apart is its effervescent twist – a splash of champagne or sparkling wine that adds a luxurious effervescence and an air of celebration.
Created during World War I, the cocktail’s name is said to be inspired by the French 75mm field gun, known for its powerful kick. Served in a chilled flute, the French 75 captures the essence of sophistication, making it a beloved choice for those seeking a delightful blend of history and taste.
