This cocktail was invented in France, likely at the Carlton Hotel in Cannes (French Riviera). It became an instant hit in London. In 1922, Robert Vermeire from the Embassy Club published the first recipe in Cocktails - How to Mix Them.
The original recipe is slightly modified by using :
· 45 ml Martell
· 15 ml triple sec
· 10 ml lemon juice
· 10 ml fresh pomegranate juice
· 5 ml red Italian bitter
· orange peel
Being served in a uncommon glass will bring some surprise as well. Double walled glasses will keep the cocktail colder for a longer time.
- 45 ml Martell
- 20 ml triple sec
- 15 ml lemon juice
- orange peel
Pour all ingredients into the cocktail shaker. Shake well until the metal gets frosted. Strain into a coupe glass. Twist an orange peel over the drink and discard.
