NEW ORLEANS - It's COOLinary month, which means lunch under $20 and dinner under $39 at over 70 great restaurants around town. Here's what we're drinking at  Arnaud's with our delicious meal.

The French 75 is a New Orleans staple, typically made with gin and champagne. Though at Arnaud's this famous cocktail has a major twist!

Arnaud's French 75 is made with cognac rather than gin! Here's how they do it:

  • 50 oz Cognac (Courvoisier VS)
  • 1 tsp Lemon Juice, freshly squeezed
  • ¼ tsp Simple Syrup
  • Lemon Twist
  • 75 oz Champagne (Moët & Chandon)
  1. Place the cognac, lemon juice and Simple Syrup in a shaker filled with ice and shake ONLY long enough to chill.
  2. Pour into a frosted champagne tulip glass, top with champagne and add a lemon twist.

You can try it at home, but it's even better when paired with your Coolinary meal.
