Paradise Recipe

Glass Guide- Cocktail Glass

The Paradise is one of the lesser known classic cocktails that has long been a favorite aperitif. Where the Martini is dry, the Paradise is sweet and fruity and a nice precursor to summer dinners.

If you can, use fresh squeezed orange juice to compliment the gin and for the gin, a London dry like Martin Miller's is perfect.

This is the up version of the drink, but a Paradise shooter is also pretty popular.

Neat presentation uses no ice. Neat is room temperature with no mixing or shaking involved as in ""Royal Salute, neat."" Paradise should be shaken and strained straight up. Probably a ""typo"" because Colleen is usually technically perfect. How can she look so young and be so experienced? As Darth Vader said to his son during their Lightsaber duel- ""impressive."" Colleen is usually ""impressive.""
