Paradise Cocktail

The Paradise Cocktail (Martini)

The Paradise cocktail is one of the not so known classic cocktails that has long been a favorite of many of us. Where the Martini is dry, the Paradise cocktail is sweet and fruity, a really nice accompany to summer evening dinners. If you can use fresh squeezed orange juice to compliment the gin in the drink. And, for the gin a London dry like cheap Bombay Sapphire Distilled London Dry Gin is perfect. This is the neat version of the drink, but a Paradise shooter is also pretty popular.

Who Invented The Paradise Cocktail

The Paradise Cocktail was invented by Harry Craddock and it is a pure classic. This cocktail has absolutely classic composition – gin as main alcohol, apricot brandy (actually is not a brandy, it is sweet fruit liqueur) as sweetener and freshly squeezed orange juice as compliment.
