The Bloomsbury is a masterpiece by Robert Hess (2003).

I created this drink as part of a promotion for Tanqueray 10, and so that is the recommended gin to use. The name comes from the fact that Tanqueray originated in the Bloomsbury district in London“, Robert writes in his book The Essential Bartender´s Guide.


2 oz. Gin (I do not have the Tanqueray 10 at hand, I took Bombay Sapphire), 1/2 oz. Licor 43 (a Spanish liqueur made from citrus and fruit juices, flavored with vanilla and other aromatic herbs and spices, for a total 43 different ingredients), 1/2 oz. Lillet Blanc, 2 dashes Peychaud´s Bitters, garnish: 1 Lemon Twist


Stir ingredients with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with the lemon twist.


The Bloombury is an aromatic sweet and herbal (with vanilla upfront) Martini style drink. I wish my beloved Eva were here tonight to enjoy it with me!

    Anything using my favourite liqueur (Licor 43 – Cuarenta Y Tres) is something to add to my try list! Cannot wait to sample this, thank you for sharing it 😀
