Prince's Smile

Wow! That's all I can say for this refreshingly bright yet sweet gin cocktail. I was especially pleased (it made me smile) that it was well balanced and played to the strengths of all ingredients, including apple and apricot brandies.

So even though I used cheap apricot flavored brandy, I had real apple brandy that was infused with real winesap apple flavors. This, and spicy gin from MurLarkey, gave the drink a very classic taste that I couldn't get enough of. It was a great use of the last drops of my apple brandy.
  • 2 oz. gin (MurLarkey ImaGination used)
  • 1 oz. apple brandy
  • 1 oz. apricot brandy
  • 1 tsp. lemon juice
Combine all ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
