The Blanche Devereaux

Yeah that’s right – this cocktail is called the Blanche Devereaux and it’s the perfect drink for any Golden Girl. I first tried this great cocktail at Freemans in NYC. Now you can make it yourself.


  • 1 oz Bulleit bourbon
  • 1/2 oz St. Germain elderflower liqueur
  • 1/2 oz fresh juice from 1 lemon
  • [1/2 oz simple syrup – I skip this as it makes it too sweet]
  •  3 oz Champagne
  •  Mint

1.Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and add bourbon, St. Germain, and lemon juice.

2. Shake.

3. Strain into an ice-filled highball glass.

4. Top with Champagne and garnish with mint.

5. Drink

6. Repeat.

Christian has been a cultural and style junkie since the age of 6; while most kids were swiping cookies, he was swiping his grandfathers' Patek Philippe. Raised to appreciate art, fashion,design and  literature (yeah, this one actually reads) by a single mother fondly called Jackie-O. Christian quickly went from childhood cultural capital thief to academia protégé. Referred to as the cat's meow by some, too clever by half by others, Christian eschewed the academic life and ran away to join the circus -the fashion circus. Several well-appointed positions later and a career on the rise would be most people's dream but it was time to say fuck off and start all over again.

This is Christian Dare Unedited.
