Earlier this week, I received a big box of citrus from my friend Cherril’s trees. Cherril, a friend I met on my work trip to Nashville last year, lives in Arizona, and grows grapefruit, pomelos, blood oranges, Meyer lemons and more. It’s incredible!
This drink is like a perfect Manhattan, but made with gin. And orange juice.
2 ounces gin
1 ounce orange juice
1/2 ounce sweet vermouth
1/2 ounce dry vermouth
Combine ingredients in a cocktail shaker over ice. Shake vigoursly. Strain into cocktail glasses. Garnish with an orange twist.
