pumpkin french 75

pumpkin french 75 | cocktail recipe
The French 75 is by far one of my favorite cocktails. A champagne and gin based drink created in Paris in 1915, I know you must be shocked. It was one of the first cocktails JD and I made when we decided that we could make our own at home and has not once disappointed. Since it is now October and I have given myself the go ahead to get a little pumpkin crazy, I thought it would be fun to add a little pumpkin to this classic drink. It was a good thought. The pumpkin flavor is subtle and blends nicely with the gin, lemon, and champagne (though we technically used prosecco).

Pumpkin French 75
1 oz gin
1 oz pumpkin puree
1.5 oz lemon juice
1.5 oz simple syrup
champagne/prosecco/sparking wine

Add gin, pumpkin puree, lemon juice, and simple syrup to a shaker and shake with ice. Strain and pour into a glass (preferably champagne flutes which we were somehow fresh out of). Top with champagne and enjoy!

*A cinnamon stick is optional but if you're going to sip this one, it's nice to have for stirring as the pumpkin eventually begins to settle.

I will certainly be making this again throughout the fall! 

Happy Friday everyone, have a great weekend!
