Calvados 75

You may know the French 75 as a meeting of champagne and gin. But this drink, named for a World War I artillery weapon, first got its kick from mixing Calvados, Normandy’s renowned apple brandy, with the bubbly. Try the purely French original onboard the S.S. Joie de Vivre on our Paris & Normandy itinerary or make it at home!
