He woke up to sounds of gun shots coming from far away fields and found himself at a distant countryside with a war camp set up. Before he could hardly manage to come to his own senses, he was told by some passerby that they would be moving tonight. “Wait. But where? And where are we right now?” he raised all the questions that made rounds in his head.
“We are in the midst of war” replied a voice. “This should be a joke” he murmured warily.
The debauchee that he was, back in the pub, French 75 kept flowing.
P. S – French 75 is a cocktail originally made from cognac, Champagne, lemon juice, and sugar; however gin has now come to replace cognac. The true nature of origin of this cocktail still remains muddled. However, it is believed that Scot Harry MacElhone (owner of Harry’s American Bar in Paris) gave the cocktail it’s name in 1926. Apparently named after a 75mm Howitzer field gun used by the French and the Americans in World War 1. The gun was known for its accuracy and speed, and the French 75 is said to have such a kick that it felt like being hit by such a weapon.
I have signed up for Blogging From A-Z Challenge- April 2017. I would be writing 100 words fiction this A-Z season. My fiction pieces will be twisted around various cocktails.
