The Story Behind The First Flight
For this take on the French 75, Yang employs bourbon instead of gin, housemade orgeat instead of simple syrup, and adds a touch of Angostura bitters. The resulting cocktail is a bit more complex while still retaining the light, refreshing qualities of a French 75.
- 1 ounce bourbon
- 1/2 ounce lemon
- 1/2 ounce orgeat
- 2 dashes of Angostura bitters
- Combine all ingredients into a mixing tin with ice.
- Shake and strain into a chilled flute.
- Top with Champagne.
