Perfect cocktail for a warm day.

  • Servings: 1
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: N/A
  • Total Time: 5 minutes


1.5 oz London Dry Gin
¾ oz Lillet Blanc
¾ oz Fresh Orange Juice
1 tsp Cherry Heering


Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice. Shake vigorously and strain into a cocktail glass.

Helpful Tips:

Fresh squeezed orange juice works much better than store bought. Kirsh is not an adequate substitute for the Cherry Heering, but Luxardo Maraschino would likely work. A lighter bodied approach to the Blood and Sand. Perfect mid-afternoon cocktail, especially when the sun's out. Includes a bonus literary reference, just because.
