Lucien Gaudin Cocktail - The Cocktail Spirit with Robert Hess

Lucien Gaudin was a French fencer who won gold medlas at the '24 and '28 Olympic Games. So fond were the French of this master swordsman that they named a cocktail after him after his most recent victories. His namesake is a very European flare with its use of gin, vermouth, Cointreau and Campari. Delicious!
