Elmwood Park, NJ -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/28/2014 -- John Wm. Macy's CheeseSticks presents a recipe for French 75 to serve while people watch the Oscars. Often award shows such as the Oscars encourage people to celebrate. It is the type of occasion when it is fun to serve cocktails featuring champagne, such as the French 75.
In Make it French 75 for the Oscars, John Wm. Macy's CheeseSticks describes the Oscars as a great celebration of cinema. Champagne is appealing on its own or as a cocktail ingredient. There are an array of cocktails featuring champagne. Often these bubbly beverages are served at parties or when people are celebrating something special.
According to the John Wm. Macy's CheeseSticks blog, the French 75 was invented during World War I. The cocktail was created in Europe and became popular during the days of the prohibition. Much like a Tom Collins, the French 75 is made with a base of gin, sugar and lemon. The big difference is this cocktail is topped off with champagne rather than soda water.
John Wm. Macy's CheeseSticks also recommends the Bitter French, which is a simple variation of the French 75. The Bitter French includes all the same ingredients with an added quarter ounce of Campari. Cocktail enthusiasts can also create their own variations of the French 75 and add fresh fruit such as strawberries or raspberries. It is the ideal cocktail to serve with snacks during the Oscars or for any good-time gathering.
