1 3⁄4 oz Gin

Add ingredients to a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake hard and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a mint leaf.


Swap out Gin, with Rum, and this drink is similar to the La Floridita cocktail.
Or swap out the grapefruit juice for lemon juice, and the drink is similar to the Aviation cocktail.

  • I was surprised that the small amount of citrus worked for me here, allowing the sweetness of the Maraschino to come through.

Prefer the Colonial cocktail, which has the same ingredients, but is heavier on the grapefruit juice and lighter on the maraschino.
