1 ½ oz. gin (Bombay Sapphire)
1 ½ oz orange juice
1-2 dashes orange bitters
Combine with ice; shake. Strain over ice; top with a cherry!
From CocktailMusings.com: “Reminiscent of oranges, this drink is a mixture of juniper and orange flavors on the tongue, with slight other floral notes pulling through thanks to the Lillet Blanc and the inclusion of bitters.” Say what? Wait, their ABBEY has a totally different recipe. The CocktailMusings version calls for kina lillet, half as much orange juice, and angostura bitters, which sounds about fifty times better than ours. Perhaps we should veer off onto this more interesting variation? No, we will stick to the program.

Eric: “This is shit. All I can taste is orange.”
Brian: “Really? Because all I can taste is gin.”
Eric: “Wow, our taste receptors are totally different.”
