A bubbly sweet and tart cocktail with champagne, lemon juice and gin, a twist on the classic French 75!
The French 75 cocktail was created during World War I at the famous New York Bar in Paris. The combination of gin and champagne was said to have such a kick that it felt like being shelled by one of the most fearsome guns, the French 75mm cannon! The original has champagne, lemon juice, sugar and gin, and there have been a lot of variations since then, even some using French cognac!

Wanting to start the new year out with a bang, and with this cocktail packing a punch, we figured this would be a great way to celebrate. Since we are starting a new year, we wanted to make a variation of this classic cocktail, and felt the pomegranate juice gave it a different flair. We used a brut champagne, but a rose would make it an even more beautiful pink! If you are looking for another champagne cocktail, try out our Carrot Ginger Mimosa!
