The French 77 Cocktail


When Zack and I were in Hawaii on our honeymoon, we tasted different dishes and drinks that we had never tried before. Some of my favorite drinks to order became anything with St. Germain elderflower liqueur. It’s sooo refreshing and yummy.


When we got home from our honeymoon, I looked this delicious drink up and found out it has a name! The French 77, close cousin to the French 75, which includes gin and sugar. You’ve got to try it this summer!

French 77

1½ ounces St. Germain elderflower liqueur
1/4 ounces fresh lemon juice
Brut Champagne or Prosecco


1. Pour St. Germain and fresh lemon juice into champagne glass or wine tumbler.

2. Top off your glass with your favorite sparkling wine.

3. Garnish with a lemon twist or slice.

I hope you enjoy this cocktail as much as I do. As I mentioned above there are different variations of this drink, some including club soda and others including gin. I love bubbles, so I’m happy with this one.
