Cocktail recipe: French 75
© Lucas Allen

French 75

  • SERVINGS: makes 1 drink

Many believe this drink was devised by American soldiers in World War I hankering for a Tom Collins. They had gin and lemons but no soda, so they used what was at hand: Champagne. The result was named for the French-made 75-millimeter guns used in the war.

  1. Ice
  2. 1 ounce gin
  3. 1/2 ounce fresh lemon juice
  4. 1/2 ounce Simple Syrup
  5. 4 ounces chilled brut Champagne
  1. Fill a cocktail shaker with ice. Add the gin, lemon juice and Simple Syrup and shake well. Strain into a chilled flute and stir in the Champagne.
