  • 2 oz Gin

  • 0.75 oz Fresh Lemon Juice

  • 0.5 oz Simple Syrup

  • 3 oz Sparkling Wine

French 75


While both the name and recipe have changed over the years - the gin vs. cognac debate has been going on for a straight up century - we like to keep it old school with fresh lemon juice, simple syrup, sparkling wine and…let’s go with…gin.


This drink is most likely named after the popular French 75mm Field Gun from World War I. Given the boozy nature, it was said this drink could knock you on your derriere just like the namesake gun and given our many experiences with the sneaky strength of this cocktail, a better name would be hard to coin. Today’s variations include subbing the gin with cognac, bourbon, vodka or even tequila. However you load it, this one packs a punch.
