A Daisy is a long cocktail with a high proportion of alcohol and sweetened with fruit syrup. Perhaps it gets its name from the now old-fashioned slang when the word ‘Daisy ‘referred to something exceptional and special.
3 measures gin
1 measure lemon juice
1 tbsp grenadine
1tsp sugar syrup
4-6 cracked ice cubes
Slice or orange, to decorate
1. Pour the gin, lemon juice, and grenadine and sugar syrup over the cracked ice and shake vigorously until well frosted.
2. Strain into a chilled highball glass and top up with soda water.
3. Stir gently, and then decorate with an orange slice.
