FRENCH 75Cocktail Recipe

A thunderous accompaniment to any celebration. Named for a famously smooth French gun (the Canon de 75 modèle 1897), the French 75 is considerably more fun than its artillery namesake. Some say it was created by British soldiers in France in World War I and mixed in spent shell casings, but it was enjoyed (with a different name) by the Prince of Wales as far back as the 18th Century. It is essentially a Tom Collins where the soda is replaced with Champagne. Now contemplate that for a moment…yes, it is as good as it sounds. An outstanding French 75 recipe.
