Review:

This creamy orange cocktail screams for a funky and characterful rum that needs taming - it's just not the same with a more restrained rum. And, depending on your orange curaçao and personal tastes, you may want to add a touch of additional sugar to the classic three equal parts recipe.

History:

Adapted from a recipe in Harry Craddock's 1930 The Savoy Cocktail Book.

PARISIAN BLOND COCKTAIL.
1/3 Sweet Cream.
1/3 Curaçao.
1/3 Jamaica Rum.
Shake well and strain into cocktail glass.

Harry Craddock, 1930
