The Lucien Gaudin

Named after Lucien Gaudin, a French fencer (what other fame were you expecting?), who won two gold medals at the 1928 Olympic games.  Likely a prohibition era cocktail due to the time of his fame, and based on the ingredients it would make sense.

From a quick search I am not sure how many of this Lucien Gaudin would have actually drank, his appearance is exactly what I think of for a creepy French guy, including some epic mustaches.  The drink however, is a great looking cocktail and great flavor as well.  A little less bitter and more citrus than a negroni, there is still a strong flavor to it, just more balanced than many Campari drinks.

Lucien Gaudin1 oz Gin
1/2 oz Campari
1/2 oz Grand Mariner (or Cointreau or triple sec will work well)
1/2 oz Dry Vermouth

Shake and strain into cocktail glass, garnish with an orange peel after first expressing the oils into the drink and onto the rim.  Enjoy
