Old Etonian

I'm reposting the Old Etonian cocktail as one of the rare classic drinks that use creme de noyaux. This is not even one of the cocktails in the New York Bartender's guide, but it is one of my favorites and I wanted to try it with my new bottle of creme de noyaux by Tempus Fugit. This creme is very classic itself. It goes back to the days when cremes were consumed by themselves--they were twice as strong then, as Tempus Fugit cremes are today--and were not thought of as cheap liqueurs that seldom get used.

This cocktail had its origins in England and pays tribute to Eaton College, a boys boarding school for those with wealth and influence.
  • 1 1/2 oz. gin (MurLarkey ImaGination used)
  • 1 1/2 oz. Lillet blanc
  • 2 dashes Creme de Noyaux (Tempus Fugit used)
  • 2 dashes orange bitters (Hella used) 
 Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and double strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
