Orange Blossom


It is disappointing to discover that the pretty name of this cocktail is derived from the practice of adding fresh orange juice to bathtub gin during the years of prohibition in the United States in order to conceal its filthy flavor. Made with good-quality gin, which needs no such concealment, it is delightfully refreshing.


4-6 cracked ice cubes

2 measures gin

2 measures orange juice

Slice of orange, to decorate.


1. Put the cracked ice cubes into the cocktail shaker.

2. Pour the gin and orange juice over the ice and shake vigorously until a frost forms.

3. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass and decorate with the orange slice.
