TGIF — Thank Gin It’s Friday

March 26, 2010 (Day 55) — French 75

Gin. It’s good. Gin and Tonic. Its good. Martinis with gin. They’re good. Tanqueray is good. Never made a French 75. Why not mak one tonight? Sure. Why not.

Mmmmmm. French.

2 oz gin

1 1/2 oz lemon

2 tsp sugar

1 maraschino cherry

2 oz champagne

Mix the lemon, gin and sugar in a cocktail shaker. Shake well. Pour into rocks glass. Place maraschino cherry in the glass. Top with the champagne. Stir well. Sip.

The one you see above, that’s a cherry French 75. What makes a cherry French 75? Pour a little bit of maraschino liquid into the drink. Mix again. Drink.

It’s very good. Like a cherry limeade. Errr. Cherry lemonade. From Sonic.
