Cocktail night with the girls is about to get Frenchified. Presenting the French 75 – a cocktail made with Tanqueray Nº TEN Gin, sugar syrup and a touch of lemon. This iconic cocktail originated in the roaring 20s – the Jazz Age. Think bootleggers, fur coats, flappers and cloche hats. Think Great Gatsby. It’s such a vibe. The French 75 was popular in clubs throughout New York, and appeared twice in the classic flick Casablanca. You don’t have to be a pro mixologist to bring French sophistication to your next cocktail party. Do it in five steps.
