Σχόλια:

I’ve Colin Field to thank for my French 75 epiphany. One evening in early June 2017 I was sat at his bar (Bar Hemingway) and he showed me the vintage 75ml gum cartridge he keeps there and pointed out how it is shaped like a tall Collins glass and not a flute. The French 75 was originally served in a tall cartridge shaped glass, and I now agree with Colin – it is a drink that should pack a punch and should be served in a Collins glass.



So, there you have it, it took a man called Colin to persuade me to use a Collins glass. Incidentally, Colin’s bar lies a 5-minute walk away from where the ‘75’ Cocktail is thought to have been created and he serves a truly superb French 75 in a Collins glass.

Οι ρίζες του:

Created by yours truly (Simon Difford), this combines Robert Vermeire’s 1922 French 75 with the cognac and champagne now so identified with this classic. And thanks to Colin Field’s influence, this French 75 is served in a ice-filled 10oz highball glass rather than straight-up in a flute or coupe.
