Pour all ingredients, except the lemon rind, into a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Cover with the lid and shake vigorously for at least 20 seconds. Strain into a cocktail or martini glass. Garnish with a piece of lemon rind and enjoy immediately.
This cocktail was inspired by a recent trip to Paris. Check out the video below to watch my first attempt at “liquid gastronomy”!
I love to serve cocktails at home. The French Blonde is a great one for large groups because you can pre-mix all the ingredients in a pitcher and keep it in the fridge. When it is cocktail time, you simply pour the pre-mixed cocktail into your shaker filled with ice, shake and serve. No messy measuring of ingredients as guests wait.
