Created in the Paris landmark, Harry’s Bar, by Harry MacElhone, a little more that 20 years before World War II. This cocktail was made popular by French soldiers and gets its’ name from the rapid fire field artillery piece called Matériel de 75mm Mle 1897, or as it was commonly referred to, The French 75.

1 oz gin,
1 oz Cointreau,
a squeeze of lime,
1 packet of sugar
and is topped off with champagne.
