French 75 Cocktail

Print Friendly

Champagne has always been a favorite drink for special occasions, but why not turn it into a cocktail and drink it more often.  French 75 has been around since 1915 and was created in a New York style bar in Paris and was brought back to the United States after World War I.  The French 75 name comes from a 75mm French field gun that many said had the same kick as this drink.
