tigger

1/2 Coate's Plymouth Gin (1 1/4 oz Bluecoat)
1/2 Kina Lillet (1 1/4 oz Cocchi Americano)
3 dash Swedish Punsch (1/2 oz Kronan)

Stir with ice and strain into a coupe glass; I added an orange twist.
Two Fridays ago, I decided to make a drink from the 1934 1700 Cocktails for the Man Behind the Bar called the Trigger. With the trio of spirit, Lillet, and Swedish punsch, the Trigger reminded me of the tequila-containing Metexa from the 1937 Café Royal Cocktail Book. Here, the Trigger began with orange and pine notes on the nose. On the palate, peachy-citrussy wine with floral accents filled the sip, and the swallow broadcast gin botanicals melding well with the punsch's tea tannins.

Judging by the post title I thought this might be a Winnie The Pooh drink.... ;-P
