Champagne cocktails are sometimes thought to be girly drinks. But there are some that could totally put hair on your chest. This one, The French 75, is one of those. Or at least it normally is with its big blast of gin and very little else to dress it up.

In this version, I’ve added grenadine instead of the usual simple syrup. It still has a gin and tonic feel to it, but with a touch of sweetness.

Here’s The French 75 recipe
