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.
