Petite Fleur: Not only Sidney Bechets composition or the Chris Barber Jazz Band Hit in 1959 - but also a world champion cocktail!

Chris Barber forwarded us an e-mail from Michael Gerhardt, informing us that obviousely a special drink had been created in the late fifties called "Petite Fleur".

This cocktail, created by Dieter "Charlie" Waidmann from Germany, was the winning drink in the category "Pre-dinner" at the 1959 competition in Copenhagen of the International Bartenders Association. We have been informed that Dieter "Charlie" Waidmann is still the one and only world cocktail champion from Germany! 

Will this be your favourite drink??


Thanks to Chris Barber and Michael Gerhardt for this information.
