The Cranberry Rosemary French 75 is a riff on the classic French 75. Cranberry juice and rosemary infused vodka (plus fresh rosemary and cranberries for garnish!) make this drink especially festive.
A classic French 75 is made with gin (though vodka can be used, too), lemon juice, simple syrup, and champagne. It’s a very pretty, classy looking cocktail. With New Year’s Eve being right around the corner, I thought that a variation on that classic drink would be really good.
A while back, I made a batch of Rosemary Infused Vodka (mostly so that I could whip up the really delicious Palace Cafe Cocktail) and I’ve been looking to use it again ever since. Since vodka is often used in a French 75, and rosemary and cranberry are great together, I decided to combine all of these flavors in one drink.
These cocktails look pretty impressive (and very festive). Only you have to know how easy it was to put them together.
- 1 1/2 oz rosemary infused vodka, see notes for recipe
- 2 oz cranberry juice
- 3/4 oz lemon juice, fresh
- 2 oz champagne/prosecco
- fresh rosemary and cranberries, for garnish
Add the rosemary infused vodka, cranberry juice, and lemon juice to a champagne flute.
Top with champagne/prosecco/your bubbly of choice.
Garnish with a sprig of fresh rosemary and a few fresh cranberries.

If you’re looking for more bubbly cocktails to help ring in the New Year, lemme make a few suggestions. Blackberry Champagne Floats couldn’t be easier (and you can use whatever flavor of sorbet you’d like). A Chambord Kir Royale looks and sounds very fancy, but is actually super easy to throw together. And let’s not forget about Pomegranate Champagne Moscow Mules, which are as pretty as they are tasty.
