An English Rose is a delightful variation of the classic Martini. It's sweeter, using apricot brandy, grenadine and lemon for flavor but it is still a great 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.
