Cocktail Recipe: French 75 (Soixante Quinze)

A French 75 is the perfect cocktail to get the party started. This cocktail is a refreshing drink that is strong and delightful. The drink dates back to the 1920s and was first created at Harry’s New York Bar in Paris. Below is my recipe:


  • 2 oz of gin
  • 1 oz fresh squeezed lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz of simple syrup
  • Champagne
  • Lemon spiral for garnish


  1. Combine gin, lemon juice, and syrup in a cocktail shaker filled with ice and shake for about 15 seconds.
  2. Strain the cocktail shaker mixture into a glass of champagne. Top off with more champagne and then stir. Add lemon spiral and serve.
