NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) — This version of the French 75 is one of Molly’s go-to options when hosting a crowd. It’s simple to make, and effortless to offer it both ways – with or without alcohol. It’s also Eat Fit approved, meaning it’s low in sugar – so there’s truly something for everyone.
The French 75, featured in Craft: The Eat Fit Guide to Zero Proof Cocktails, Muddle and garnish with berries or tuck in a little sprig of rosemary.

The French 75 was named after the French 75-millimeter field gun celebrated for its rapid-fire power. The original, made with cognac — and even its lighter gin-based sister — is a wickedly powerful concoction. This zero proof version maintains the respect of the original’s potency without knocking you out.
French 75 | The Eat Fit Collection
Makes 1 serving
- 1 ounce zero proof gin

Combine gin, lemon juice and Eat Fit Simple Syrup in a small shaker tin filled with ice. Shake and double strain into a tall champagne flute. Top with zero proof sparkling wine and garnish with expressed lemon swath.
PRO TIP // The lemon juice really fizzes up the sparkling wine. Tilt the champagne flute as you pour the sparkling wine to keep it from overflowing.
