Bird of Paradise

This is a pretty simple gin fizz drink that, with a little color, masquerades as a tiki cocktail. Serving it in a tall glass accentuates the bold color of the grenadine used to sweeten this cocktail. It looks like it could be a jungle bird.

Homemade grenadine means that the flavor is drier than it would be if you used Rose's grenadine. That's not a bad thing, but it lacks the color that is sometimes desirable from Rose's.
  • 2 oz. gin
  • 1 oz. lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. sugar
  • 1 tsp. grenadine (2 tsp. recommended if using homemade grenadine)
  • 1 egg white
  • sparkling water
Combine all ingredients except sparkling water in a shaker with ice. Shake vigorously and pour into a chilled highball glass. Top with sparkling water and stir gently.
