Review:

Fresh, clean, sophisticated – dangerously quaffable.

The use of powdered sugar instead of sugar syrup adds an attractive sherbet note to this cocktail. However, the drink also works well with sugar syrup – use ¼oz/7.5ml sugar syrup in place of the 1½ spoons of powdered sugar.

History:

Prior to the 1980s/90s, the French 75 cocktail was a long drink, served in an ice-filled Collins glass. This modern flute serve has become the usual serve with the Collins version now all but forgotten.
