Believe it or not, this cocktail belongs to the race track family of drinks. Cagnes Sur Mer is the motorway in Fance where the Monaco Grand Prix is held. This long drink is full of citrus flavors from curacao and Forbidden Fruit. I've extolled the exotic virtues of Forbidden Fruit in many of my posts, (in this drink it lends a sweet grapefruit flavor to the orange juice) but this time the unusual ingredient is the Vitae Orange Liqueur that I used in place of the curacao.

This cocktail is good to drink in hot weather. It has a fresh gin flavor with refreshing juice and citrus liqueurs. The sweetness comes from the honey and cognac in Forbidden Fruit and it all comes together with orange bitters and soda.
  • 1 1/2 oz. gin (MurLarkey ImaGination gin used)
  • 1/2 oz. Forbidden Fruit (Homemade recipe used)
  • 1/2 oz. curacao (Vitae orange liqueur used)
  • 2 oz. orange juice
  • 1/2 tsp. lemon juice
  • several dashes orange bitters (Hella used)
  • club soda
  • orange slice
Combine the first six ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled Collins glass full of fresh ice. Top with soda and stir gently. Garnish with an orange slice.
