So far you've had a Sidecar, tasted a Between the Sheets and met Tom Collins. Without further ado - drum roll please, let me introduce you to the Booth's Gin cocktail competition first prize winner - The Red Lion. Oh and the year was 1933. But trust us, there's nothing old school about this cocktail.
The Red Lion was created by a British barman, Arthur Tarling. The drink was soon adopted by Grand Marnier for promotional use in the 30's and is actually still being promoted up to now as you can see from their website. That's been over 70 years! Talk about a cocktail with staying power.
In a Boston shaker with ice, combine:
2 oz Gin (Tanqueray #10)
1 oz fresh lemon juice (no subsitutes)
1/2 oz Grand Marnier
1/2 oz Grenadine
Strain into a chilled martini glass.
Optional sugar rim.
