The French 75 is one of the most historic and historically popular cocktails ever created. It's been around since World War I and even appeared in Casablanca because it's simply that delicious. The floral and herby flavor of the gin pairs well with the tart lemon juice and the sparkling champagne. The French 75 helps ring in the new year with the taste of class and sophistication.
