A Few Key Ingredients:
Gin – a subtle addition that brings a bit of spice to the cocktail

Serve it in Style
Choose a Festive Glass
A typical French 75 cocktail is served in a tall flute glass due to it being a Champagne-forward drink, however a coupe glass would also be a fun and festive approach to serving.
Add an Interesting Garnish
The recipe calls for a slice of lemon but you can also try adding a small orange peel to the cocktail as well.
Serve Alongside an Upscale Napkin
Tie in the theme of the evening with a celebratory cocktail napkin to keep guests comfortable while also adding a touch of style to the gathering.
