This Friday, we wanted to show you how to make a cocktail for Mother’s Day. We decided on the French75, an easy, gin and sparkling wine based cocktail that tastes springtime sweet and refreshing with brunch. However, after we bought our ingredients, we realized that in the chaos of moving, all of our cocktail equipment was still at home! We decided to get creative. Did we succeed? Our tastebuds would be the judge…

Here’s how to make a French75 at home:


In a shaker (or shaker replacement) filled with ice, shake all of the ingredients except the wine for 15 seconds. Strain into a Champagne flute or a wine glass and top with sparkling wine. Enjoy!
