Add some bubbles in an unusual way this Mother’s Day with Hendrick’s Gin

Toast the No.1 lady in your life and all that she does this Mother’s Day with an unusual Hendrick’s Gin tipple.

One of a kind, just like the lady who raised and reared you, the French 75 tipple, infused with Hendrick’s Gin and topped with champagne is the perfect accompaniment to any celebrations you have planned.

Named after a famously smooth French gun (the Canon de 75 modèle 1897), the French 75 is considerably more fun than its artillery namesake. Some say it was created by British soldiers in France during World War I and mixed in spent shell casings, but it was enjoyed  – under a different name – by the Prince of Wales as far back as the 18th Century. It is essentially a Tom Collins where the soda is replaced with Champagne.

All moms love a glass of bubbly – so celebrate your mom with a drink as unique, unusual and glorious as her this Mother’s Day.

Everything is better with Hendrick’s Gin, and this bubbly tipple is as good as it sounds!
