What could be more significant in French history than the French Revolution? Neither is it surprising that it has a drink named after it. The drink 1789 (named after the year the Revolution began) was developed by a Parisian bartender to honour and celebrate the historic event. And nothing beats sipping it at one of the oldest bars in Paris.

2. French 75

This bubbly drink, made with gin, champagne, lemon juice, and sugar, is light and delicious. The cocktail was named after the French 75mm cannon as a tribute to how powerful it is and was created in the renowned Harry’s New York Bar during World War I. The pub is still open, so pay a visit to the original birthplace of this classic.3The Mimosa at Ritz

3. The Mimosa at Ritz

In the mid-twentieth century, the Ritz in Paris was a popular cocktail spot, and the Mimosa was said to be created by Frank Meier, the Ritz’s bartender. The drink was most likely named after the same-named flower because of its golden colour. Champagne and orange juice are the only ingredients needed for this recipe. At brunch, it’s usually served in a champagne flute.

4. De la Bretagne at Copper Bay

De la Bretagne is a drink served at Paris’ Copper Bay Bar. This cocktail, prepared with Tupelo Mead honey, rye whiskey, Pommeau (a cider-like drink), and Benedictine, will leave you wanting more. It is highly recommended and beautifully presented. Make a note of this place and do not forget to grab this drink next time.

6. Le Maudit Français at Experimental Cocktail Club

The term “Le Maudit Français,” which translates to “Bloody French,” can be used as a compliment or a derogatory term. Gwladys Gublin of the Experimental Cocktail Club created this cocktail. Armagnac (a kind of brandy from the Armagnac area), sherry, orange juice, maple syrup, champagne, a sprinkle of bitters, and orange zest are used in this drink.

7. Sidecar at Bar Hemingway

Cognac or brandy, orange liqueur, and lemon juice combine to make this stunning orange drink. While there is some disagreement regarding whose Parisian bar was the first to think of it, we recommend trying one at Bar Hemingway at the Ritz-Carlton hotel in Paris.

8. Tremblement de Terre at Moulin Rouge

With a recipe that specifies a blend of gin, whiskey, and Absinten, shaken thoroughly and presented in a cocktail glass, Harry Caddock gave “The Earthquake Cocktail” an English touch. A brandy snifter is used instead of a wine glass, and ice cubes are added or a splash of cold water to make this bitter elixir more acceptable.

9. The Rose at Le Glass

The Rose is a famous Cocktail in Paris back from the 1920s ,made by Johnny Mitta a barman at the Chatham Hotel. Kirsch, Dry vermouth, and strawberry or raspberry syrup are combined in this colourful cocktail. Drop by Le Glass for a fashionable late-night party and try one of these.
