Bermuda Rose

This lovely photo by Ned Drummond shows off this interesting combo cocktail. I call it that because there are two families of drinks involved. The Rose family of drinks (or the broader flower category including Orange Blossom drinks.) These are usually served up.

The other family of drinks is the Bermuda themed drinks. These always include brandy or apricot brandy. It must be a thing. The Bermuda Rose has the pinkness of the Bermuda Bouquet and Rose cocktails but it also has a limey citrus and gin center. Apricot brandy only sweetens it a bit, as does the grenadine.
  • 2 oz. gin
  • 1 tbsp. lime juice
  • 2 tsp. apricot brandy
  • 2 tsp. grenadine
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Satrain over ice cubes in a chilled Old Fashioned glass.
