A French 75 Alternative
Try this Summer Cocktail that’s Refreshing and Flavorful
I was introduced to the Dutch 75 when one evening, low and behold, we were out of gin for a French 75! My wife, Laurie, said, “I have a solution for that. It’s called a Dutch 75. We just substitute the gin for the vodka in stock. Voilà!”
Dutch 75 is a Great Summer Drink
This light and tasty drink is fit for kicking off a soirée with friends on a hot summer day. Although inspired by the Kettle One Vodka Dutch 75 recipe, our recipe is different. We recommend a larger portion of bubbly and the original Kettle One Vodka (not Citroen, as promoted by Kettle One). For our bubbly, we prefer Ménage à Trois Presecco.
The Dutch 75 is best when served very cold. Be sure the bubbly has a few hours in the fridge before guests arrive and the glass flutes are ice-chilled before pouring.
