No, this drink isn’t a reference to the singer. He changed his name to some symbol anyway, right? The Prince’s Smile is a sweet, tart, slightly herbal little cocktail.
With a couple of fruity brandies and some gin and lemon juice, the initial taste of this one is tart citrus, but it quickly mellows out to sweetness. It’s a nice little drink for the end of a long day – a little bit refreshing without waking you all the way up.
- 1/2 ounce apple brandy
- 1/2 ounce apricot brandy
- 1 ounce gin
- 1/4 teaspoon lemon juice
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice, pour in all the ingredients and shake until chilled. Strain the mixture into a cocktail glass.
