The French Connection cocktail has a fun name and is super easy to craft at home. However, don’t underestimate this two-ingredient cocktail that tastes greater than the sum of its two parts. It’s a cocktail keeper.

French Connection Cocktail with Black Background

The French Connection intrigued us before we took our first sips…

For starters, its name reminds us of France. After multiple visits to cities like Paris, Lyon, Dijon and Strasbourg as well as Marseille, we feel a connection to the hexagonal nation.

And, since we met at an Oscars party, we also have an affinity for movies that have won Academy awards. You guess it – this cocktail was named after The French Connection movie.

Did you know artichokes are considered to be one of the oldest foods in the world, first harvested in the Middle East? I loved the food there, especially this Baba Ghanoush recipe!

It wasn’t until around 70 AD that they became popular when ancient Greece and Rome discovered its flavor. Have you been to Rome? I managed to see so much in just 3 days in Rome – it’s totally doable if you have other places you want to go!

Later, around the 15th century, the humble artichoke’s popularity soared in Florence, and by the 16th century, Italy caught on, too. Who else loves Italian appetizers? Try this one- it’s my best bruschetta recipe!

Stuffed mushrooms are always an easy yet impressive
