It’s 5-O’Clock Somewhere: French 75

September 27, 2013

This Friday’s cocktail, the French 75, kicks off an entire month of champagne cocktails. Why four weeks of champagne, you ask? Well, when it comes to champers, we always say, why not? And¦we’re feeling effervescent in honor of our October catalog, which was shot in Parisand when in Paris, only the bubbly will do. So get out your fancy glasses and pour yourself a flute of this sweet, citrus-y (and pleasantly strong) concoction. ƒ la vƒ´tre!
