COCKTAIL OF THE WEEK - FRENCH 75
This week's refreshing cocktail is the historic French 75, shared by our team at East Sussex National. Named after the French 75-millimeter light field gun which due to its portability and rate of fire was the mainstay of the French army during World War 1.
An early form was created in 1915 at the New York Bar in Paris—later Harry's New York Bar by barman Harry MacElhone
Good luck and happy cocktail creating!
