Frenchie cocktail

Frenchie, a cocktail that was first made popular in the 1950s by Trader Vic, is a delightful mix of gin and Lillet Blanc. It can be enjoyed as an after-dinner drink or as an enjoyable complement to brunch. He wanted to create a new cocktail that would be easy for people to remember – so he called it Frenchie. It is a cocktail made with gin, lemon juice, sugar and champagne that was supposedly invented during World War I.
