The French 75 cocktail is the inspiration for this cocktail. Omitting the lemon juice and replacing it with grapefruit juice and a hint of orange flavour makes this an excellent brunch cocktail. The French 75 cocktail was named after a large cannon used during war that used 75mm shells. The name French Cannon is a tip of the hat to the classic recipe. Easy to drink in the morning or in the evening, enjoy a splash of effervescence and let the cannon guide you. For an extra kick of the cannon, you may replace the Gruvi with an alcoholic sparkling wine of your choice.
