The Bastard French 75, a fitting name for a bastardized French 75, which came out of me using ingredients that I like and screw ups. First, we’re using limes instead of lemon. Secondly, we’re using proseco instead of champagne. Typically, champagne is rather dry which is no fun, so we’re going to use something I prefer.
And screw the flute glass, I like my cocktails in low-ball and collins glasses. Follow through with it all and you end up with this bastardized version of a classic cocktail – a French 75, which I’ve aptly name the Bastard French 75. Be forewarned though – these hit like a truck, so drink them slow. Otherwise… come tomorrow morning you may not remember what happened tonight!
But if you don’t take it slow, check out the cocktail that was made for hangovers: The Corpse Reviver No2.
