This weeks episode: FRENCH 75 & BLACK EYED PEAS (or Bean)

French 75:

This drink takes us back to World War I and it was named after the French 75-millimeter light field gun . So it does have some military grade strength to it.

Combine gin, syrup, and lemon juice in a cocktail shaker filled with ice (unless specified always filled with Ice, unless you are Ali and need this specific instruction). Shake vigorously as if you are using French 75-millimeter light field gun and the rat-tat-tat is making you shake your drink. Then strain into a champagne glass or flute using a Hawthorne strainer if you have or a pair of panty hose like they did in the war. Top up with Champagne should be about 2 oz. Stir gently and enjoy with that joie to vivre that only the French could exude in their cocktails during the war.
