1/4 oz. lemon juice
3/4 oz. Grand Marnier
1 oz. gin
Shake well with ice in a shaker. Strain into a cocktail glass.
Plymouth Navy Strength gin. The winner of the night! This tastes very much like a Dreamsicle… with a kick. I have to agree with Ryan, this drink would be perfect, if incredibly dangerous, by the pitcher. We got to experimenting with the standard Rose’s grenadine (to which I am generally opposed… tastes fake and usually too sweet). First try was with Fruitlab’s hibiscus liqueur. It was okay, but not quite it. Next up was a new spirit for The Rep, Pama pomegranate liqueur. Bingo! I see Red Lion’s in my future!
