French 75 Cognac Gin Champagne Sugar Lemon Juice Flute Cocktail

The components of the French 75 have been a subject of intense discussion. While Champagne is an essential ingredient, there is contention regarding whether it should be paired with gin or Cognac. Originating in Paris in 1915, the French 75 draws its name from a type of French artillery shell, manifesting the potent impact of a 75mm round in both variations. Personally, we have a preference for the cognac rendition due to its truly refined and authentic French elements. If you desire additional recipes that showcase these distinctively French flavors, consider exploring the Barbotage or the Sidecar.


2 oz COGNAC, Or gin
.5 oz LEMON JUICE, Fresh is best
2 oz CHAMPAGNE, To top
