French 75

I am not much of a mixed drink kinda gal… but I discovered this drink a few years ago and it has been one of my go-to’s when out on the town. It’s light, tart, and refreshing- oh, and not too sweet! I can’t stand mixed drinks that are so sweet that you wake up with a headache the next day. What I love is that it’s pretty simple to recreate at home.
