Mad Men Throwback: Bert Cooper Cocktail

15 Jan

This site, Kindred Cocktails, has stolen my heart. It’s going to be a sparkly cocktail/hard liquor kind of January around these parts, me thinks.

Bert Cooper

1 14 oz Gin, Tanqueray
14 oz Meyer lemon juice
14 oz Maraschino Liqueur, Luxardo
3 oz Champagne
14 oz Crème Yvette (float)
2 twst Meyer lemon zest (one shaken, one as garnish)
Shake gin, Meyer lemon juice, Meyer lemon zest, and Maraschino with ice; strain into a chilled Champagne flute with a Meyer lemon spiral at the bottom. Pour Champagne. Float Crème Yvette.
Green Chartreuse makes a good float too, if you’d like it to be more of a Royal Word than a high-flying Aviation. Regular old lemon would probably work well for those who don’t like the thyme-y herbaceousness of Meyer zest. More austere and funky than a French 75; good for those who want something festive and effervescent but a bit more challenging.
