Japanese 75 | Cocktail Party

Japanese 75

The Japanese 75 is a fresh twist on the classic French 75, with sparkling sake taking the place of the sparkling wine in the original. It’s the brainchild of Kate Simon, an editor-at-large for Imbibe magazine and the author of Tiny Bubbles, a fantastic book all about sparkling cocktails.

The French 75 was named for the devastating 75mm artillery cannon, first debuted by the French army in 1897. The Japanese military quickly adopted a similar design and kept it in use for nearly half a century, making the name of this drink even more fitting than is apparent at first glance.
