Inspired by Sweet Liberty’s late John Lermayer’s motto “Happy Women, Happy Bar” this cocktail was created with ingredients that women basically love to drink, and the name makes it pretty fun to order as well. Let’s face it, no matter how hard we try, there’s a little ‘basic bitch’ that lives inside of all of us.
This beautified version of the French 75, a classic champagne cocktail, is shaken with vodka, St. Germain, Prosecco, Strawberries and Lemon – and, it’s basically delicious.
“The Basic Bitch is one of our most popular cocktails. A beautiful candy pink color. It’s lightly herbaceous, effervescent and refreshing,” the creator of this sparkling concoction, Sweet Liberty’s Bar Manager, Fraser Hamilton, shared with thirsty.
