1 Dash Lemon Juice.
1/4 Orange Juice. (1/2 oz fresh squeezed Orange Juice)
1/2 Gin. (1 oz North Shore Distiller’s No. 6)
1/4 Apricot Brandy. (1/2 oz Rothman and Winter Orchard Apricot)
Shake well and strain into cocktail glass.
Sadly, nothing particularly amazing or fantastic going on here in the Paradise, but what do they say? “Heaven is a place where nothing ever happens.” This version of paradise is a refreshing and enjoyable cocktail and not much more. Strikes me as kind of non-threatening and brunchy.
Crap, I should be keeping a list of these Screwdriver, Mimosa, and Bloody Mary replacements, so I can order them the next time I have brunch at a cocktail bar. Hear that Clover Club? I’m looking at you!
This post is one in a series documenting my ongoing effort to make all of the cocktails in the Savoy Cocktail Book, starting at the first, Abbey, and ending at the last, Zed.
