Perfect your negroni, one of Italy's great contributions to the cocktail world
Dating back to World War I, the French 75 is named for its strong gin kick. The cocktail may still be strong, but if you're looking for a spritzy drink that's simple to make with a solid gin backbone, this may be the drink for you. Learn how to make one from Meghan Konecny at Scofflaw in Chicago.

1/2 ounce 1-to-1 simple syrup
1/2 ounce lemon juice
1 ounce dry gin
