Making the BC Raspberry 75

Sparkling Wine used in BC Raspberry 75

You might recognize this as a twist on the French 75. The French 75 uses classic Gin instead of Loving Dusk Raspberry Gin.

Origin and Naming

The French 75 dates back to the year 1915 in Paris. It was created at the New York Bar and was a tribute to the Americans and French who were fighting in the World War, and inspired by the 75mm Howitzer field gun used by the soldiers. The gun was known for its accuracy and speed, and the French 75 offered a kick that felt like being hit by a 75mm.

Everything tastes better with Raspberry Gin

If you try this variation using Raspberry Gin, you’ll definitely get your fix of raspberries. 

Although, when searching for raspberry gin, be mindful of cheap products that use raspberry syrups instead of the real stuff. Using concentrates and syrups provide an artificial flavour and a texture that’s quite thick and honestly, unappealing.

Raincity Distillery’s Loving Dusk Raspberry Gin is prepared by macerating real raspberries in gin to attain a sweet and tangy raspberry flavour that is crisp.

A total Booze Cruise

The BC Raspberry 75 will get you drunk faster than any other drink, because I make this with 1.5 oz gin and a full glass of prosecco. You should note that the CO2 trapped in sparkling wine acts as vessel for the alcohol in your blood. So you’ll get tipsy faster.  Your body absorbs the CO2 faster, getting you tipsier than your friend drinking a negroni or any other cocktail.
