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.
Created by Arthur Tarling, head bartender at London’s Café Royal, this recipe was first published in 1937 by his younger brother, Billy Tarling, in his Café Royal Cocktail Book.
