While gin is not bound by constraints like season or weather, it often gets relegated to warm-weather drinks because of it’s refreshing character. However, because it’s a very versatile liquor you can easily adjust a classic like the French 75 into a more autumnal take: the French Harvest.
Where the French 75 uses champagne for bubbles, the French Harvest turns to sparkling cider. The sparkling cider gives this drink a warm apple flavor that is festive and seasonal.
1.5 oz. dry gin
0.75 oz. freshly squeezed lemon juice
0.75 oz. simple syrup
Dry sparkling cider, chilled, to top
Garnish: lemon twist
1. Add the gin, lemon juice, and simple syrup into a shaker with ice and shake until well-chilled
2. Strain into a champagne flute
3. Top with the cider
4. Garnish with a lemon twist
