Cocktail Time! French 75 With a Twist

You’ve probably seen a French 75 on a menu–or perhaps you remember your grandparents drinking this vintage cocktail. One of our favorite blogs Eat Love Drink has a fun twist on this old standby with antioxidant rich blueberries!


2 ounces of gin

1 teaspoon of sugar

Squeeze of a lemon

Handful of blueberries

5 ounces of brut Champagne

What to do:

Muddle the blueberries (but don’t mush them), add the lemon juice, gin and some ice. Stir it up and top with Champagne.

What’s so special about blueberries? At just 80 calories per cup and basically no fat blueberries are a total superfood, packed with 25 percent of your daily Vitamin C and your full fiber requirement in just one serving!
