French 75


  • 2 oz london dry gin (or botanical gin if you are feeling frisky)
  • 1 oz Horball’s Peach Rosemary drinking vinegar
  • 1/4 oz lemon juice
  • 1/4 oz simple syrup
  • 2 oz Champagne

Ever wondered where the name of this cocktail came from? The French 75mm field gun and the French 75 cocktail have one thing in common – they both fire with a kick! Or so they said in 1922.

Combine gin, lemon juice, and simple syrup in a cocktail shaker. Fill shaker with ice, cover, and shake vigorously until the outside of the shaker is very cold, about 20 seconds. Strain into a champagne flute and top off with champagne. Add a lemon twist for garnish.
