Also known as a White Lady or the Chelsea Sidecar, the Delilah is one of those classic, somewhat forgotten cocktails. Like the Margarita, this drink is in the Sidecar family, which uses a base spirit, orange liqueur, and citrus fruit formula. In this instance we use gin, Cointreau, and lemon.
This is a fabulous cocktail, particularly with the right gin and fresh lemon juice. Experiment with some of the new and artisan gins that are now available because there are some delightful bouquets to be found with this mix.
