Sage French 75 is light and herbaceous and a fancy twist on the classic prosecco and gin French75.
Sage French 75 was created in honor of gin and prosecco lovers – who love a quick cocktail.
The French 75, or Soixante Quinze, is already the perfect drink. It is as French as the come, with gin mixed with citrusy lemon juice and topped with bubbles. It’s all about the bubbly gin! Sage French 75 is not only super fancy but also stupid simple to make. Be sure to serve in a champagne flute with a lemon rind on the rim and (optional) a sage leaf for garnish.
Sage-infused simple syrup is the secret ingredient in Sage French75.
All of my cocktails have a bit of simple syrup as a non-boozy base. Simple syrup is sugar water that is mixed and boiled on the stove top. Once the sugar dissolves, steep for 30 minutes, depending on the herb.
I LOVE using this base in my formula because it’s a great foundation for other flavors and herbs, such as ginger (see here!), mint or, in this case, sage. Simply follow the same recipe for simple syrup, add herbs and let them do the work!
Sage French75 is for a toast to all things new and the jolly hostess twist will beat the end of holiday scaries.
