French 75 Blood Orange

Makes 1 Cocktail
Traditionally a French 75 is made with Champagne, gin, lemon juice and sugar (simple syrup). This iconic cocktail has a long history created in a New York Bar in Paris in 1915. We decided to mix things up and add blood orange juice, tonic and soda to the gin base. The combination not only looks beautiful but is deliciously refreshing. It is the perfect cocktail to kick off any gathering.
