Clementine French 75

Sunny clementine French 75 cocktails -

Hello, dear ones. Have I told you lately how much I appreciate you? I hope your weekends were better than mine. Either way, here’s a cheerful little number that is perfectly suited for brunch, happy hour or a nightcap. Think of these French 75s as extra boozy, extra bright mimosas.

clementine juice and gin

Instead of a traditional French 75 with lemon juice, I thought it would be fun to use clementines, which are in season now. I learned that clementines are really easy to juice with a handheld lemon juicer. You’ll need a few clementines per drink, so if you’re trying to polish off one of those big bags of them, these cocktails (or this smoothie ) will do the trick!

    Recipe type: Cocktail

    Prep time:

    Total time:

    Serves: 1 cocktail


    *Honey simple syrup (yields enough for 4 drinks, scale as necessary)

    Per cocktail



    Recipe adapted from my Earl Grey French 75 .
    *Make it vegan: Either use ¼ ounce agave nectar or substitute regular simple syrup for the honey simple syrup. You can just combine equal parts fine [vegan] sugar and water in a jar and shake it until the sugar disappears into the water.
    Make it gluten free: I found Hendrick’s on a list of gluten-free gins, but you might double-check to be sure.
    Change it up: Any fresh citrus juice will work here. If you’re using something really tart, like lemon or lime, scale back to ¾ ounce juice.
