The French (Canadian) 75 at OPUS Bar

On a sweltering summer day, our heated bodies need to be cooled down. Popsicles, icicles, fans, anything with some modicum of “chill” to turn down the furnace under our skin.

OPUS Bar has an item to add to your list of summer coolants… The French (Canadian) 75.

Presented in its own petit bottle, the almost traditional cocktail contains Blanche de Chambly, a Quebec white ale, instead of champagne. Barman Martin combines Plymouth Gin, Orange Bitters, and Lemon Simple Syrup within the bubbles of the wheat coloured beverage.

Expect your tongue to fizzle with vibrant and sweet citrus flavours as your body reaches a more desirable temperature. You may even swear you’re in the middle of an orange grove if you close your eyes tightly.
