English 75 Cocktail Recipe
Our English 75 cocktail recipe is a delicious twist on the Prohibition-esque French 75. The classic French recipe is named after the French ‘Canon de 75 modele 1897’ a weapon from the First World War, and first emerged at Harry’s American Bar in Paris, 1925.
We’ve swapped the traditional French champagne for a delicious English sparkling wine to reinvigorate this sophisticated tipple.
