It's a really simple drink that you can order at any bar; a combination of gin, champagne, lemon juice, and a bit of sugar (simple syrup). My drink last night was not too sweet, I could still taste the tartness of the lemon while the sweetness of the champagne left a lasting impression on my palette!
But what's more impressive than the drink is it's background story! Thank you, Bryan for sharing this wonderful history with me!
The combination of ingredients was sweet and delicious, but when
you finish you feel like you just got hit by a French 75. For all you
non-gun-slinging folks out there (a.k.a., ME!) a French 75 is a very
powerful gun also nicknamed a "75 Cocktail".
I didn't have quite this reaction to my glass, but I'll admit... it is a potent little one. Can't wait to have some more, though! This is definitely going to be joining my list of go-to cocktails. So, thanks again, Laurie ;-)
