We know you are out there doing the lord’s work, and sometimes mama needs a little sip of happiness. So we’ve put together a few of our favorite cocktails to treat yourself.

First up, the French 75. 

A fun fact about this little glass of sunshine, it was named for the fast-firing 75 millimeter field gun that was utilized by the French during World War One. Traditionally made with gin, fresh lemon juice, sugar and Champagne, it’s a great substitute for a mimosa, and a great way to bring a little zest to your day. 

Here’s what you’ll need: 

  • Gin (or cognac if you prefer) 
  • Simple Syrup 
  • Lemon Juice 
  • Bubbly
  • A twist of lemon 
  • A pretty glass (preferably a champagne flute)
  • Mixing glass 
  • Cocktail shaker

Here’s what you’re gonna do:
