Champagne isn’t the only sparkler that comes out at night …
Herbs & Rye is known for making classic cocktails without compromise. Therefore owner Nectaly Mendoza finishes his very French French 75 with Piper-Heidsieck Brut Champagne over a base of Broker’s gin, simple syrup and fresh lemon juice. $11, 713 W. Sahara Ave.
At Velveteen Rabbit, the French 75 also speaks Dutch and Spanish. The Dutch 1575 (pictured, left) combines Bols genever, lemon juice, serrano honey syrup and Bittermens Hopped Grapefruit bitters, and is then topped with sparkling Spanish cava and garnished with a grapefruit swath. $8, 1218 S. Main St.
Delmonico Steakhouse’s Italian take on the French 75, the Delmonico Cocquetel, begins with a base of Tanqueray Rangpur gin, fresh lime, fresh ruby red grapefruit juice and barman Max Solano’s nontraditional house-made five-spice syrup before being topped with Brachetto di Acqui (a sweet, crimson Italian sparkler). $14, in the Venetian.
