Review:

A Wet Martini served on the rocks, sweetened and flavoured with a slug of cognac orange liqueur.

History:

Created by Joe Gilmore at The American Bar in London's Savoy Hotel to mark Charles de Gaulle's first state visit to Britain in April 1960, as President of the French Republic. The cocktail is named after the Cross of Lorraine, symbol of the Order of Liberation. The original recipe called for 1½ parts gin, 1 part dry vermouth and 1 part Grand Marnier.
