Superman Cocktail

The Superman Cocktail features gin and dry vermouth with mandarin juice, apricot brandy and grenadine. If it wasn’t called Superman, you might think it’s perfect for a girl’s night out. And, well, it is, among other things.

Bright red Superman Cocktail with cherry

This is a drink that’s sweet and tart, with notes of cherry and orange followed by whatever notes your particular brand of gin imparts. It has a nice tang, but it’s also sweet and fruity.


  • 1 ounce gin
  • 1 ounce mandarin juice (or any orange juice)
  • 3/4 ounce dry vermouth
  • 1/2 ounce apricot brandy
  • 1 teaspoon grenadine syrup

Fill a cocktail shaker with ice, pour in the ingredients and shake. Pour (not strain) into an old fashioned glass and garnish with a speared cherry.
