Italian 75

Italian 75 cocktail with gin, lemon soda, and sparkling wine

Like the original French 75 this riffs on, the Italian 75 packs a punch! It’s crisp, fresh, and drinkable – but deceptively strong.

We found this recipe on the website for Sanpellegrino, and their lemon soda is definitely excellent in it. That said, you can use any lemon soda you like. Drier is better, in our view – but you’ve got a sweet tooth, you may even enjoy it with a lemon-lime soda like 7-Up or Sprite.

It’s best served very cold, so be sure to chill the glass and the sparkling wine.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
