The French and their drinks, mostly they are hearty cocktails! Think absinthe, Pastis, and also Champagne. The latter does have less alcohol, but the bubbles often rise to your head quickly. This French 75 champagne cocktail is also a strong drink! The name French 75 comes from the Howitser rifle that was widely used in the first World War. It used 75mm rounds and the "kick" the gun gave was described as drinking this cocktail. So drink in moderation…
