The Classic Italian 77

Julip Made Italian 77_3 The Italian 77 is a  light and floral cocktail similar to a classic Champagne cocktail or the French 75, but with a little less fuss.  It is bubbly, girly, and delightful for sipping.  It is also the libation of choice for my aunt who happened to be in town for her birthday and kindly instructed me on the art of the perfect Italian 77.  For similar sips, try this or this!
