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.

French 75 recipe:

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

Add simple syrup, lemon juice and gin to shaker, shake with ice, strain, top with sparkling wine, garnish with lemon swab.
