Popular French Cocktails You Can Mix at Home

April 16, 2020
France isn't exactly known for their cocktails. Sure, they have one of the finest cuisines in the world. And yes, Paris, the country's capital, is also home to some of the tastiest and most expensive bottles of champagne out there. But when it comes to cocktails, unfortunately, London has this place beat. But that doesn't mean you can't enjoy a mean cocktail in the 'City of Lights.' After all, the French capital is one of those cities where nightlife is just as exciting and beautiful as daily life. Here are some popular French cocktails you need to try. And the best part is you can mix and enjoy them at home too!

Mimosa

Let's start with an instant classic: the Mimosa. It's no secret that Paris is one of the capitals of champagne. The sparkling drink fits so well with the equally sparkling "City of Lights." And with this in mind, it shouldn't be a surprise that one of their most favourite cocktails is one that includes the classic beverage. A fixture for breakfast and brunch. the Mimosa is a fruity concoction that has the tanginess of orange juice with the kick of champagne. But what if champagne is too expensive for you? Sparkling wine is a great alternative and will taste just as nicely!

The Black Rose

With a name like "The Black Rose," it's easy to think that this next cocktail is a girly drink. However, it's arguably far from that. Though women can still enjoy this just as easily, "The Black Rose" is actually made up of French Vermouth, one of the strongest liquor to even come out from the European country. Mix it well with blackberry syrup and it will pack one hell of a punch. On the offset, it looks like a pretty and gentle drink, especially when garnished with a few juicy blackberries. But take one sip too many and you'll be knocked out till the next morning!

The French Martini

Now for something classic and a little bit historic. "The French Martini" isn't just a cute name given to a cocktail just so the French can say they have their own concoction. In fact, it's often been said that it was King Louis XIV who first tried this cocktail out. And you know that opulent and flamboyant royal had expensive taste, so expect this one to have a high-class kick to it. Made with Chambord liqueur, vodka, and pineapple juice, it's a melody of flavours that will leave you feeling crazy whilst wanting more at the same time.

Bobo Parisian

You can say the French love their sweets but they do enjoy some bitterness from time to time. And terms of their most popular cocktails, the "Bobo Parisian" takes the cake. A Paris favourite, the healthy mix of gin, St. Germain, Rhubarb Bitters, and club soda contribute to its very strong buzz. One sip will make you cringe like mad but will leave you wanting more at the same time. And compared to the other cocktails on this list, this one is arguably the most modern. It's beloved by young and trendy Parisians, the ones you'll likely see hanging out or living in Montmartre.

Kir Royale

A cocktail that came from the unlikeliest of sources. Canon Félix Kir was far from what you'd consider a cocktail master. Firstly, he used to be a priest. Then, he entered politics and became the mayor of the city of Dijon in eastern France. And during World War II, he became a huge part of the Resistance, eventually being honoured as a hero after the war. And yet, out of all his achievements, one that has made the most impact is his Kir Royale cocktail. A sweet concoction of white wine and crème de cassis, it's become a go-to cocktail for many Parisians who go for a night out on the town!
