Festive French 75
While the classic French 75 cocktail is already friendlier than its name implies, this version is made extra special with an easy tea-infused gin and simple syrup. Serve during evening or brunch.
The French 75 is named for the fast-firing 75mm field gun used by the French during World War I. While the classic cocktail is already friendlier than its name implies, this version is made extra special with an easy tea-infused gin and simple syrup. The subtle notes of rosemary and cinnamon make Honeybee Ginger Elixir perfect for evening imbibing, while for brunch, try Mango Tango Herbal Tea instead for more tropical, mimosa-like vibes.
