3.5 shots out of 5
Half way through the weekend and having a fun time. We got to see friends we haven't seen in quite some time which is always nice. The weather is beautiful which also makes for a nice weekend!
I gave tonight's cocktail 3.5 shots out of 5. I have got to say, it's nights like tonight when I make a cocktail that I "already know" I simply will not like.........and it surprises me and I actually do like it. To me, that's what this blog is all about! Never knew apricot brandy existed until I started this blog, once I did know about it, I was already convinced that whatever cocktail I made that included apricot brandy in it, I would not like at all. This blog has opened my mind to all kinds of flavors, and I love it! The lemon juice in this cocktail adds a nice subtle lemony flavor to it that is quite enjoyable.
Here is the recipe for a Paradise:
- 1 oz gin
- 1 oz apricot brandy
- 1 oz orange juice
- 1/3 oz lemon juice
In a shaker add ice and all of the ingredients above. Shake and strain your cocktail into a chilled short cocktail glass.
Here is a photo of the end result:

Here's to old friends and picking up right where you left off!
