I recently discovered the French 75, a potent little gem invented by a French WWI pilot who wanted to add an extra kick to his champagne. Soon it caught on with legendary drinkers F. Scott Fitzgerald and Ernest Hemingway, so you know when you want something special, this is the classy drinkers' obvious choice.
