French 75

This classic cocktail originated in Paris around 1915, and it combines two of our favorite ingredients: Fords Gin and champagne. Fresh lemon juice joins with the citrus-peel flavors of the gin to give a bright, floral character to an already delightful, sparkling and refreshing cocktail.
