How to Make a French 75 Mocktail

Pinterest Logo

The French 75 was named after the French 75-millimeter field gun celebrated for its rapid-fire power. The original, made with cognac — and even its lighter gin-based sister — is a wickedly powerful concoction. This zero-proof version maintains the respect of the original’s potency without knocking you out.

A word to the wise: This version of the French 75 has been reworked to fit the Eat Fit nutritional criteria — namely, dialing back the sugar and, of course, omitting the alcohol. As you take your first sip, do so with an open mind, expecting a fresh spin on the traditional favorite.

Recipe Yield
Yield 1 serving


  • For the drink
  • 1 ounce zero-proof gin
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon Eat Fit Simple Syrup
  • 4 ounces zero proof sparkling wine
  • Ice
  • Lemon swath, expressed, for garnish
  • For the simple syrup
  • 1 cup water
  • ½ cup Swerve granular or 1 ½ cups granular allulose


  1. For the simple syrup: In a saucepan, bring water to a boil. Reduce to medium-high heat and add sweetener. Stir to dissolve and continue to heat for 10 minutes. Pour into heat-safe glass container and refrigerate to chill. Store unused portion in airtight container in refrigerator for up to four weeks.
  2. For the zero-proof cocktail: Combine gin, lemon juice and Eat Fit Simple Syrup in a small shaker tin filled with ice. Shake and double strain into a tall champagne flute. Top with zero-proof sparkling wine and garnish with expressed lemon swath.
  3. Note: The lemon juice really fizzes up the sparkling wine. Tilt the champagne flute as you pour the sparkling wine to keep it from overflowing.

This French 75 mocktail, or zero proof French 75, as many bartenders prefer to say, gives you the taste you love without the alcohol. Find more great recipes in the book "Craft: The Eat Fit Guide to Zero Proof Cocktails.''
