Specialty Cocktail Spotlight: French 75

The French 75 gets its name from a light yet powerful French 75mm gun, called the M1897.  So why don't they call it the French 1897?  We're guessing it's because 75 rolls off the tongue a whole lot easier.

In any case, this drink, like the gun, packs a surprisingly powerful punch.  Traditionally made with gin, simple syrup, lemon juice and topped with champagne, the French 75 is a surefire crowd-pleaser.

Ingredients

1.5 oz Gordon's Gin
.75 oz Simple Syrup
.75 oz Lemon Juice
1 oz Prosecco

Directions

Combine all ingredients, minus the Prosecco, in a shaker with ice.  Shake well and strain into a chilled martini glass.  Top with the Prosecco and garnish with a brandied cherry.  Enjoy responsibly — this one will sneak up on you.
