The Story Behind The Tanqueray French 75

For those already familiar, the classic French 75 is an elegant, celebratory cocktail worthy of every fancy toast. Even so, it’s also a great alternative to a Mimosa and easy to serve at any time of day — or night. This version benefits from luminescent Tanqueray No. TEN gin, which is then combined with the classic recipe’s core ingredients (sparkling wine, fresh lemon juice, and a touch of simple syrup) to create a dazzling drink for any occasion.
