Inspire Happy Hour Cocktail – French 75

It's Time for Happy Hour with a French 75

Get out of the office and celebrate your hard work.

Today Speakeasy Market Strategies is featuring the French 75 cocktail.

This drink was named after an innovative piece of French artillery back in WWI by a French American pilot. He was not impressed with the potency of champagne, therefore he added the following ingredients to create the French 75. He named it this because he felt like after drinking this concoction that if felt like being on the receiving end of a French 75mm howitzer artillery piece. This cocktail is not for the light-hearted and gives a kick!
