This one comes with a warning, Mr R had to put me to bed for half an hour after consuming just one Buzz-Bomb (and some of the rest of the champagne of course). I lay there like a MUMMY, unable to move a muscle. This cocktail is a humdinger and no mistake.
I mentioned in the demonstration video that Gertrude had an amazing look so I’m posting some pix below. She’s just AMAZING. Also a link to the Soundie I mentioned for Oh Johnny!
According to IMDB she played a character called Bubbles La Marr in the musical, “Follow The Girls,” at the Shubert Theater in Chicago, Illinois.” Oh how I’d love to be called Bubbles La Marr! There was a character called Spud Doolittle in it too. Maybe I’ll start calling Mr R “Spud” in the hope that he’ll call me “Bubbles” in return. We have to amuse ourselves in these strange times somehow!
Here’s me trying to impersonate Gertrude.
For a Niesen Buzz-Bomb you’ll need 1 oz lime juice, 1 oz Cointreau, 1 oz cognac, 1 oz benedictine, 1 oz vodka and some vintage champagne. Be prepared to feel a bit like this…
And here’s a link to one of her movies . A Circus picture no less !

Do not try the hire wire act at home after one of her Buzz Bombs.
HAHAHAH! I am going to check this out for sure. Thanks Mark. No trapeze action round here after a Buzz-Bomb. Just lying comatose in a darkened room for half an hour!
You two are so funny, Jenny! Always enjoyable.
Thank you for enlightening me about Gertrude Niesen.
I had never heard of her before!
Aw, thanks, Annette. We have sooooo much fun making these! Jx
