Golden Dawn

This is another juicy gateway gin cocktail that's sweet and pretty tropical tasting. You really notice the apricot liqueur (brandy in this case) and the grenadine that is used to give the drink this rosy color.

There's so much juice in this drink that it it's only half as strong per ounce as a Martini, which is why beginning drinkers will gravitate to it. That doesn't mean that if you drink the whole thing you won't get as tipsy, though. A sweet drink will affect you as much as a dry one, if not worse for all that sugar.
  • 2 oz. gin 
  • 1 oz. apricot brandy
  • 1 oz. lime juice
  • 2 oz. orange juice
  • dash grenadine
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
