Orange undertones add citrus depth to the lemon explosion.

About:

Created by Dick Bradsell at Fred's, London, England, in the late 1980s. His original recipe (1½ shots citrus vodka, ¼ shot triple sec, 1 shot lemon juice, ¼ shot sugar syrup and 3 dash orange bitters) was served short and straight-up with sugar syrup rather than grenadine.



I (Simon Difford) added the grenadine and made the Leninade a long drink in July 2013 after reader feedback on diffordsguide.com said the name was suggestive of a long red vodka-based drink.
