Ready-to-drink cocktail review: Brody's French 75 and Touch of Grey

Posted by Jaime Fowler on

Brody's Craft Cocktails ready to drink French 75 and Touch of Grey gin cocktails reviewed by The Pursuit of Cocktails

It's time for cocktails! I'm back this week with the last of the Brody's cocktails and this time it is the gin cocktails. If you missed the last few weeks, I tried their ready-to-drink rum cocktail, the Air Mail, first and immediately fell in love with this line. You can read that full review here. Then last week I tried the two vodka cocktails and tried them mixed 50/50 with champagne as the label suggested. You can read that full story here. So now I'm on the last leg of this Brody's journey and I'm a little sad. Thankfully, I have two cocktails this week to console me.

Let's just get right into it! Here are my pretty pretty cocktails all dressed up and ready for the party. Now onto the sips.

Here is my official review of Brody's ready-to-drink vodka cocktails:

5 out of 5 cocktail shakers
I'm giving both of these 5 cocktail shakers because of how much I love the Touch of Grey cocktail. That French 75 is something tho . . .
Brody's French 75: As soon as I took my first sip of the Brody's French 75 I remembered why I had a little asterisk next to this cocktail in my brain. The asterisk was for the star anise listed on the label. Star anise is such a distinct flavor. It is often used in black licorice so naturally I immediately think of Jagermeister every time I get a hint of that flavor.
I do love the irony of using a flavor similar to Jager in a fancy champagne cocktail. It's very cheeky and a super well crafted cocktail. If you like black licorice flavor then you *have* to try this cocktail!
Brody's Touch of Grey: Now on to my favorite of the Brody's cocktails. I wasn't sure I was going to like this one just because I'm not much of a tea drinker but when I tell you I rolled my eyes at my first sip. YUM! I love this cocktail so much. So much so that even though I do share most of my cocktails with my friends, I'm keeping this whole bottle to myself. It is that good. And I've already told multiple people they should buy it too. If I'm giving out a gold star for my favorite cocktail in this line, the Touch of Grey gets it for sure!

1 out of 5 cocktail shakers

One shaker = not sweet at all  // Five shakers = your teeth may curl

Nope, neither of these are sweet. Even when added to champagne the Brody's cocktails are not at all sweet.


4 out of 5 cocktail shakers
One shaker = does this have booze? Five shakers = OG Four Lokos

The Brody's French 75 gin cocktail officially ring in at 18% ABV. The Touch of Grey is 17% so again these are pretty boozy. I honestly feel like the Brody's line is the perfect addition to a party. The booziness is perfect - boozy without being too crazy, the range is great so you have a lot of variety to offer your guests, and when you top it off with champagne you get a fancy vibe that also doubles the number of cocktails you have on hand. You really can't beat that! 

Would I buy these ready to drink cocktails again?

Yes. Like I said I think these would be great for a party and I also love the idea of including them in a cocktail gift box. The packaging is so retro cocktail that they'd be perfect paired with some nice glasses and a set of Swizzly Sticks of course. ;)
