Review:

Clean, crisp, and fresh - gin-laced orange zesty citrus with herbal vermouth mellowed by smoothing egg white.

History:

Recipe adapted from A.S. Crockett's 1935 The Old Waldorf-Astoria Bar Book which originally calls for "orange gin" rather than an orange liqueur. Crockett says the drink "celebrated the local opening of Edmond Rostand's Chanticler".

Edmond Rostand was a French poet and dramatist, best-known for his play Cyrano de Bergerac. First released in 1910, Chantecler (correct spelling) is a story where the characters are based on barnyard animals, and whose eponymous protagonist is a rooster who believes that his song makes the sun rise.

By all accounts the cocktail is rather better than the play. Incidentally, the Chantecler is actually a breed of chicken developed in the early 20th century by Brother Wilfred Chantelain, a Trappist monk at the Abbey of Notre-Dame du Lac in Canada.
