Quarantine Cocktails – The Piney 75

During quarantine, I have tried to get more creative with cocktail preparation. This is a great recipe for a riff on the French 75. This is a recipe from my friend Joe Liolos (www.instagram.com/iburnedmytoast) for what he calls a “Piney 75.”


  • 2 oz gin.
  • 1/2 oz. lemon
  • 1/2 oz. rosemary simple syrup
  • Sparkling wine

Shake, double strain into a coupe, top with sparkling wine, expressed lemon swath garnish. The gin I used is Empress 1908 and the wine came from Naked Wines.
