French 75

Sipping a French 75 is like firing a shot of sophistication and sparkle, with a Champagne kick that always hits the target.

Why is it called The French 75?

The French 75 cocktail is said to have been created during World War I, and named after the French 75mm field gun used in the war. The drink is known for its combination of gin, lemon juice, sugar, and champagne, which can pack a punch like the artillery piece that inspired it.
