Share this...

Last Updated on November 22, 2022 by The Noms

A bubbly sweet and tart cocktail with champagne, lemon juice and gin, this one a twist on the classic French 75 recipe! Make this Pomegranate French 75 for the holidays and the new year!

 

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 is said 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!

Head over to our French 75 recipe post for more info on the origins of the French 75. It’s a classic cocktail for a reason, and is easily changeable with fun flavors for holiday seasons or for certain celebrations. We loved the pink color the pomegranate juice gave in our variation, which makes it great for Christmas, as well as holiday brunches! As well as our Thanksgiving Champagne Cocktail.

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. This Pomegranate French 75 recipe is simple and easy! 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.

 

The pomegranate juice gives it the perfect winter and holiday flair! The pomegranate flavor goes together perfectly with the botanical and citrus notes in the gin. The lemon juice adds more sour, which the pomegranate juice does as well, so if you need to adjust the lemon juice level, feel free.

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!

 

 

What Gin Should I Use for the Pomegranate French 75?

Feel free to use your favorite gin, but we really liked a London Dry. But, a nice citrus gin compliments the pomegranate juice, as well as a nice floral (Hendrick’s) does the trick as well. Feel free to play around and find what you like!

What Ingredients are Needed for the Pomegranate French 75?

  • Pomegranate juice – We used POM because it is easy to find and tastes good. Less work makes entertaining easier.
  • Champagne – Feel free to use a lower cost champagne or Prosecco. You don’t need to spend a lot of money to make a tasty French 75. Korbel, Chandon, anything less than $20 will be perfect.
  • Gin – For the gin, as said above, a London Dry or Hendrick’s does really well in this.
  • Lemon Juice – Freshly squeezed is best!
  • Simple Syrup – homemade is best, recipe here!
  • Sugar Rim – optional, but again, if you want your cocktail to be a little sweeter, this is a great option, and looks like snow!
