The History

The Australian 75 is our take on the French 75 but uses the best sparkling Australia makes, Prosecco.

The French 75 or Soixante Quinze is named after the fast-firing 75 millimeter field gun that was utilized by the French during World War One. The drink however has had many variations with recipe’s including brandy, French Champagne, Grenadine, Calvados and even Absinthe. Over time the recipe today of gin, fresh lemon juice, sugar and Champagne, has become a staple in just about every great bar in the world.

There is no doubt, the Australian 75 is a party starter. Mixing a great gin with a great Prosecco, it’s a cocktail that has broad appeal, has a touch of elegance and prestige and, tastes incredible.

Tips / Additional Notes

If hosting a party, premix your gin, lemon and simple syrup, store in the fridge and serve with Prosecco as required. Chilled glassware helps to keep the drink colder for longer.
