This Gin and Juice Drink is made with gin, orange juice, and grenadine syrup and is pour into a glass of ice and stirred into a beautiful cocktail.
This Sunrise Gin and Juice is absolutely delicious and blends perfectly well with everything. The strong gin, sweet grenadine and citric orange juice give this drink a perfect flavor. You can drink this for a nice brunch or evening cocktails. Gin is one of my favorite spirits and I usually don’t order an overly sweet cocktail as, let’s face it, causes my worst hangovers. This is only sweetened with one tablespoon of grenadine syrup and is mostly orange juice.
Gin is distilled with grapes and grains. Gin has a juniper, piney and herby flavor. A regular gin and tonic Is great, but this sunrise Gin and Juice will change the way you enjoy gin. Other gin drinks to enjoy include negronis if you like a bitter aperitif, a gin martini, and a gin gimlet. You can also enjoy gin straight on the rocks and drop a lime wedge. If you are drinking straight gin, it must be good quality gin. Feel free to modify the gin amount to your liking.
You'll only need a few simple ingredients to make this. The exact measurements are listed in the recipe card below. Here's an overview of what you'll need:
- Orange juice
See recipe card for Gin and Juice Drink quantities.
Feel free to froth the orange juice before using.
Fill a cocktail glass with ice. Pour the grenadine syrup in.
Top with the orange juice.
Stir with a mixing spoon.
Hint: Frothing the orange juice brings out a lot of the sweet and sour flavors.
Grenadine: Another great grenadine substitute? Pomegranate juice and simple syrup. Mix together 2 parts simple syrup and 1 part pomegranate juice.
Orange juice: Use freshly squeezed orange juice for best results. You could use store bought orange juice as well.
Gin: I used the brand called Empress gin 1908 which is purple, delicious and aesthetically pleasing. You can use any brand you prefer.
MIxology is a chance to be creative! Have fun with it and feel free to make your own variation.
- Deluxe - Rim the glass with Tajin or equal parts salt and sugar.
- Kid friendly - Omit the gin for a virgin cocktail.
I love using beautiful glasses for this drink. It is also helpful to use a shaker with a jigger for measurements. I use an inexpesnive one from Amazon I highly recommend.
This will be good in the refrigerator for 2-3 days.
