The Coral Gables Cocktail

October 17, 2008

This little number, David, is for sipping by the pool. Or, you could shake one up and enjoy it on the veranda overlooking the croquet game below. The lawn does look lovely, doesn’t it?

For 2
4 ounces fresh squeezed madarine or clementine juice
2 ounces cold dry gin
1/2 ounce cointreau or grand marnier
(If she has a sweet tooth, you could add a full ounce)
2 dashes orange bitter

Combine the ingredients in descending order over ice and shake gently. Strain into chilled martini glasses and garnish with bitter orange zest.
