  • 1 shot gin
  • 1/2 shot freshly squeezed blood orange juice or grapefruit juice
  • 1/4 shot sugar syrup
  • ice cubes
  • Methode Cap Classique
  • 1 maraschino cherry, to garnish

Cooking Instructions

In a cocktail shaker, shake the gin, orange juice and sugar syrup with ice and strain into a chilled champagne flute.
Top up with a good, crisp Méthode Cap Classique and garnish with a maraschino cherry.

TASTE’s take:
Named for a type of field weapon, the original French 75 has its roots in 1920s wartime Paris. This rendition packs a sweeter punch by using the juice of blood oranges, rather than the traditional lemon juice, to produce a sweet, tart and totally drinkable cocktail that’s an all round classic.
