French75 Cocktail Rezept

The French 75 is a refreshing and sparkling cocktail that is perfect for parties, celebrations or an extravagant night out.

The original recipe for the French 75 consisted of gin, lemon juice, sugar and champagne. Over the years, however, a number of variations of the cocktail have been created, in which cognac or brandy is often used instead of gin.

The history of the French 75 - Military & Hemmingway

The French 75 has been around for over a century. It is said to have originated in Paris during the First World War and was named after a French artillery cannon called Canon de 75 modèle 1897. It was known for its powerful impact.
The cocktail was created to celebrate the Allied victory over the Germans. Perhaps this also explains why the cocktail is less common in this country than in our neighboring countries.

But not only that. Hemmingway, the sipper among writers, is also once again associated with the cocktail. During his time at the Ritz in Paris, he is said to have been more than fond of the French 75.

Für mich geht nichts über das Entdecken kleiner Manufakturen. Ob das der Micro Craft Brauer aus Bayern oder die sächsische Brennerei ist, die es bereits seit Jahrzehnten gibt - hauptsache klein, regional verwurzelt und mit Sinn für's Handwerk!
