Casablanca's French 75

HG Wine & Bar

Casablanca's French 75

Recipe by Hopson Grace

The French 75 gets its name from the 75mm M1897, a gun that became the mainstay of the French field artillery in World War I. As the story goes, British soldiers stationed in France during the war put together the ingredients at their disposal — London gin from home and the local champagne — to create a punchy drink. This drink famously appears in the movie "Casablanca," which some argue is the best cocktail movie of all time. The rest, as they say, is movie history.
