Shaken gin and juice

Shaken gin and juice

This classic cocktail is a favorite of many. Gin with orange juice is the original recipe; however, the juice options are endless!

I’ve tried mango, pineapple, and cranberry juices, all with success. However, the classic orange is still my favorite. 

Traditionally, this cocktail is served in a Collins glass over ice. I find it better to serve this shaken without ice. I think that our Louisiana humidity agrees! With this method, you are not left with watered down ice in your cocktail. 

Be sure to try the aforementioned juices until you find your favorite. Get creative!
