History

"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

Like the Black Feather with Gin instead of Brandy.

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