1 twst Orange peel (for garnish)
Stir and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Add the garnish.
"Adapted from a pre-Prohibition era drink of the same name, the original recipe called for orange-flavored gin and the white of an egg. I reformulated the Chanticleer using triple sec for the orange flavor and dropping the egg white altogether. The word, chanticleer is French for rooster and at the old Waldorf-Astoria bar, the drink was served with 'a Cock'€™s Comb, if desired.'" --Regan

Quite good, and heightened

Quite good, and heightened finely by a couple drops of oleo saccharum (should you have it on hand).
