Parisian Blond Cocktail

from The Craft of the Cocktail

  • 1 ounce Rum
  • 1 ounce Curaçao
  • 1 ounce Heavy Cream
  • Vanilla Extract (Garnish) (Optional)

Shake all the ingredients with ice and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. A drop or two of vanilla extract on the cream is an interesting garnish.

This is a vintage cocktail in the tradition of the classic Alexander, but here the liquor is rum and the cordial is orange curaçao. The name remains a mystery to me.
