This Friday we are going international with the Ritz 75, originally made popular by the Ritz hotel bar in Paris and inspired by the French 75, a cocktail invented circa 1914 and named after the French 75 mm canon. This impressive drink combines both Gin and Champagne to make a delicious assault on your taste buds

  • 0.5 oz fresh mandarin juice
  • 0.5 oz fresh lemon juice

  • Lemon Wedge
  • Maraschino Cherry

Preparing a Brandy Sling -

  4. Top with champagne (slowly!)
  5. Garnish with orange wedge and cherry (Bonus points: add a swizzle stick)
