An English Rose is a delightful variation of the classic Martini. It's sweeter, using apricot brandy, grenadine, and lemon for flavor, and it makes a fabulous before dinner drink.

There are a few drinks like the Paradise, Thanksgiving Cocktail and La Habana that also pair gin with apricot brandy, which is a fantastic combination. You may want to experiment with them all to see which you enjoy best.

What You'll Need

  • 2 ounces gin
  • 1 ounce dry vermouth
  • 1 ounce apricot brandy
  • 1/2 ounce lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon grenadine
  • Garnish: maraschino cherry

How to Make It

  1. Pour the ingredients into a cocktail shaker with ice cubes.
  2. Shake well.
  3. Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
  4. Garnish with the maraschino cherry.
