How to Make a French 75


For the next cocktail in our classic cocktail series, we’re showing you how to make a French 75! This delicious and easy cocktail recipe is sure to be a winner at your next party, gathering or just hanging out!

I tried my first French 75 in the most appropriate place, Arnaud’s French 75 Bar in New Orleans! Bartender Chris Hanna, one of America’s best mixologists, made us this classic cocktail and we sat in the coziest lounge and sipped our French 75’s. The classic French 75 recipe is Champagne, lemon juice, gin (sometimes recipes use Cognac, but use what you have on hand!) and a little sugar and the drink dates back to World War 1! It’s a sophisticated cocktail and one that is very easy to make! We’re excited to show you our easy version of the classic French 75! Also, check out the rest of our classic cocktails here!
