The French 75
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
- A twist of lemon
- A pretty glass (preferably a champagne flute)
- Mixing glass
- Cocktail shaker
Here’s what you’re gonna do:
Add the 2 oz of gin to a mixing glass
Followed by 1 oz of simple syrup
Then add 1 oz of lemon juice
Fill the mixing glass with ice
Pour over fresh ice into your champagne flute.
Top if off with your bubbly
Garnish with a lemon twist
