Episode 85: The Gin Is Mightier Than The Sword – Lucien Gaudin Cocktail

Lucien Gaudin Cocktail

At first glance, you might say that this cocktail has an unusual combination of ingredients, featuring gin, Campari, French Vermouth and Cointreau. And then you realize it is a Negroni with Cointreau. Oh well, there are only so many ingredients!

The Lucien Gaudin Cocktail on the surface seems like a perfect cocktail to be able to research because, someone’s name! As our Barbara West episode showed, it isn’t always going to be that easy. In this case, we Gaudin, a champion, left-handed, French fencer, happened to be more of a household name than our vague Ms. West.

Join us as we discuss whether this drink was something Gaudin was a fan of, or if he was lending his name to a book to add a celebrity endorsement. This episode takes us into the world of championship fencing, the Olympics, and duels! No joke, 20th century duels were a thing. History, you so crazy.
