Our version of the classic French 75 cocktail is perfect for celebrating, or simply enjoying an après-work refreshment.

The French 75 Cocktail

The French 75 Cocktail is a sparkling, gin-based classic that’s elegant, refreshing, and oozes old-world cool. We were delighted to stir up this lovely libation for our Parisian pal, Danielle Barich – a business consultant, creator, storyteller, and designer who joined us to chat for the latest installment of Cocktail Q&A: Expert Series.

The French 75 Cocktail


1.5 oz gin

0.5 oz fresh lime juice

1 tsp simple syrup

Lemon twist, for garnish


  1. Add gin, fresh lemon juice, and simple syrup to a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake until the outside of the shaker is very cold, about 15 to 20 seconds.
