Lucien Gaudin

Lucien Gaudin cocktail with gin, Campari, triple sec, and dry vermouth

The Lucien Gaudin is a bright, bitter, spirit-forward cocktail with a stunning red color. It’s named for a French fencer who took home two Olympic gold medals in the 20s. It is essentially a Negroni, with triple sec to soften and sweeten it.

Campari is typically called for, although you could substitute another bitter citrus apéritif. Aperol, however, would sweeten the drink too much, upsetting the delicate balance of the recipe.

Terrific Design!

Absolutely love this app. Gives a great visual representation of the ingredients and the user interface is well designed. Been using it to learn how to make cocktails, the descriptions are great about the drinks. As a novice barman, I love that I am learning the origin of the drink and alternative ways to make the drink. Be prepared to have a wide range of alcohol at you disposal! I can make heaps of drinks with the decent home collection I have, but seeing all the recipes what I could make gets me excited! Highly recommended, everyone loves the person who makes excellent drinks!
