How to make:
SHAKE all ingredients with ice and fine strain into chilled glass.
Orange juice and sugar coated rim
This gin and Grand Marnier based citrusy cocktail is deliberately, and indeed originally, formulated to be a tad on the sour side, but is balanced by a luxuriant sugar crusted rim. You may also be interested in trying our modern adaption of the Red Lion.
The Red Lion first appears in print in W.J. ‘Billy’ Tarling’s 1937 Café Royal Cocktail Book and alongside the recipe Billy notes “Invented by A. Tarling 1st prize Cocktail Competition, 1933 (London)”.
