Sparkling rosé adds berry notes to this take on a French 75—a cocktail that rose to prominence after World War I, named after the American slang for the 75-mm field gun. In this version, the gin is replaced with Calvados, a French apple brandy, for a deeper, woodsier and slightly sweeter twist. This recipe, from San Francisco's Slanted Door, first appeared in SAVEUR DRINK issue #1 with the story "Right on Target."
