What’s a French 75?

A French 75 is a cocktail made with gin, champagne, lemon juice, and sugar. It is also referred to as 75 Cocktail. It’s speculated that this cocktail originated from World War I and was named after the French 75-millimeter field gun used in battle. However, soldiers weren’t the only ones enjoying this refreshing cocktail. As the recipe developed over the years, it became a staple in bars across the world. Give the classic French 75 Cocktail along with the Rosé French 75!

Ingredients for the Rosé French 75 + Cupid’s Arrow Garnish

Crafted with just four ingredients, the Rosé French 75 is the perfect fusion of fresh flavors. Check out what I used to make this super simple and special mixed drink.

  • Gin: use a splash of your favorite gin, I prefer gins that are more herbaceous for this cocktail like  Hendrinks Gin or The Botanist, but check out this guide here to finding the best gin for your drink.
  • Lemon juice: a splash of fresh lemon juice balances beautifully with the gin and simple syrup. 
  • Simple syrup: add some simple syrup for a subtle sweetness. I recommend making your own batch with water and sugar. Click here for the DIY recipe!
  • Sparkling rosé: top this libation with sparkling rosé like Mionetto Prosecco Rosé Sparkling Wine
  • Cinnamon Gummy Heart Candy: This is all you need to make the cupid’s arrow garnish. I used these.

How to Make the Rosé French 75

In just 3 easy steps you could be sipping on the Rosé French 75! Start by adding gin, lemon juice and simple syrup to a cocktail shaker with ice. Then, shake until the outside of the cocktail shaker is chilled and strain the mixture into a champagne flute. Finish the cocktail, by topping it with sparkling rosé. Optional, but highly encouraged to add the Cupid’s Arrow garnish.

How to Make a Cupid’s Arrow Garnish

A tasty cocktail deserves to be topped with a fun garnish! For the Rosé French 75, I created the Cupid’s Arrow garnish made with two cinnamon gummy heart candies and a skewer.

Start by placing 1 heart candy on long toothpick or skewer with the pointed edge facing out forming the tip of the arrow. Then, cut the other jelly candy into 3 v-shaped pieces, starting from the top of the heart. Finally, Place the 3 pieces on the other side of the skewer, spacing them out slightly as the “feather” of the arrow.

That’s it! This garnish takes just a few minutes to make and gives the cocktail a really exciting finish. You can watch exactly how in this video:
