Pumpkin French 75, a variation of the classic French 75, has become all the rage in New York. It is a cocktail that was created in 1915 at the New York Bar. The bartender is most likely named "French" or "Fabian" and the drink gets its name from the WWI-era artillery piece, which was called a Canon à épaule.
It is originally made with gin, but we swapped out the gin for Plymouth Gin. We also swapped out sugar for puree to give it more pumpkin flavor and punched up the lemon juice for freshness.
1 ounce Plymouth Gin
1 ounce Pumpkin Puree
1 ½ ounce Fresh Lemon juice
1 ½ ounce Simple Syrup
