This is a classic cocktail, and the recipe is widely available. We found ours in favorite cocktail book Vintage Spirits and Forgotten Cocktails by Ted Haigh. The cocktail is named after a fencer who received gold metals in the 1924 and 1928 olympic games.

There are quite a few ingredients in this cocktail, but the orange flavored cointreau sets the main tone. Hence we would not recommend substituting cointreau with any lower quality spirit. Mixed with both gin and campari this cocktail gets an “edge” of bitterness end herbal notes. The dry vermouth mellows the drink, and take down the alcohol concentration slightly.

 

What’s in it

1 oz gin

0,5 oz cointreau

0,5 oz campari

0,5 oz dry vermouth
