American 75 Cocktail


This is a dazzling rendition of The French 75 using the Cerulea Gin from holystonedistilling

The French 75 was first published in The Savoy Cocktail Book in 1930. The Golden Era we revere. The cocktail’s title was penned in 1926 by Scot Harry MacElhone of Harry’s bar in Paris. But Harry claimed that the inception of this cocktail came from a gent named MacGarry, from Buck’s Club in London.

The inspiration behind the cocktail’s title was a 75mm Howitzer gat, used by the French and Americans during World War I. But, the liquid creation dates back much further. There are many stories that claim that during the 19th century, noble gentlemen and the Prince of Wales drank similar potions.

Whatever it’s diverse history, we know that this effervescent beauty is one that we never need an excuse to mix-up! But, boy do we love America! Let’s raise our glass to her!
