French 75

A drink that combines two of our favorite ingredients – Fords Gin & Champagne.

Named after the 75mm field cannon utilized by the French forces in World War 1, this classic tipple originated in Paris, circa 1915. The fresh lemon juice combines with the citrus peels of Fords gin to give a bright and floral character to an already delightful sparkling and refreshing cocktail.
