Drink of the Day – The Communiqué Blossom


Today’s drink of the day is the Communiqué Blossom.  I found it in W.J. Tarling’s 1937 book, The Café Royal Cocktail Book [sic].  Neither Cointreau’s nor Combier’s famous triple-sec Curaçao liqueurs need be used if you have something less expensive that is nearly as good (such as “Curaçao Triple-sec” by Boudier, Briottet or Cartron – or even “Triplum” by Luxardo).  As usual, read the fine print about grapefruit.  Please yourself with the gin selection.  After those hurdles are overcome, you will find this a tasty specimen!
