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.

  • 2 dashes of Angostura bitters
  • Champagne
