French 75

According to Ted Haigh (aka Dr. Cocktail), the French 75 is one of two cocktails named after the French 75-mm field gun, which was commonly used in World War I. "One barman in 1947," reports Haigh, "called it a Tom Collins with champagne instead of club soda. Vive la difference!"

The combination of gin, lemon juice, and Champagne brings out the best in each: it's tart, refreshing, herbal, and effervescent.
