Gin And Sin

The usual recipe for a Gin And Sin cocktail doesn’t call for the grenadine to be dropped down the middle for a sunrise effect, but that’s how I make it. It’ll taste the same however you do it, but I just think this one is so gorgeous with that red glow.

Gin and Sin drink with orange slice

And the taste is a nice combination of orange, lemon, berry and some sharpish herbal notes from the gin. It’s an easy flavor to love, even if you aren’t a big fan of gin.


  • 1 1/2 ounces gin
  • 1 ounce orange juice
  • 1 ounce lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon grenadine (drop to bottom, my preference)

Fill a shaker halfway with ice cubes and pour in all ingredients except the grenadine. Shake until chilled and strain into a cocktail glass. Add the grenadine straight down the middle for a sunrise effect. Garnish with an orange wedge.
