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.


1 oz Fords Gin

½ oz Fresh Lemon Juice

½ oz Simple Syrup

3 oz Dry Sparkling Wine (chilled)


Add all ingredients (except Champagne) into tin with ice and shake gently for 20 seconds. Strain into chilled flute and top up with sparkling wine.

Garnish drink with lemon twist and serve immediately.
