An interesting balance of blackcurrant, vermouth and gin. Sweet palate and dry finish.
A classic cocktail named after the pre-war French pianist, singer and stage actress Yvonne Arnaud (1890-1958). A concert pianist as a child she went on to act in musical comedies before switching to non-musical comedy and drama around 1920. She then took dramatic cinematic roles during the 1930s and 40s, continuing to act into the 1950s.
