1 shot out of 5
One more day of this school/work week and we get to have another weekend! There has been a good amount of baseball and spring soccer talk around this house lately, so I very well know that our carefree (yea, like I've had one of those in 14 years) weekends are about to come to an end.
I gave tonight's cocktail 1 shot out of 5. I have not made a gin cocktail in a while and with my new found.....liking for gin, I thought I'd make a gin cocktail tonight. I found tonight's recipe at spirited entertaining. They stated that it was a good party starter, so I thought why not! Better question.......Why? Yikes, this is not a good cocktail at all. I'm not quite sure what all I can say about this cocktail, besides DON'T try it. I will still look for more gin cocktails and if you have any delicious ones, please send them into me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Here is the recipe for a Red Cloud:
- 1 1/2 oz gin
- 1 1/2 oz apricot brandy
- 1/2 oz lemon juice
- 1 tsp grenadine
In a shaker, add ice and all of the ingredients above. Shake and strain into a short cocktail glass...or your sink, whichever you feel will work better for you.
Here is a photo of the end result:

Too bad tonight's gin cocktail is not a winner. Here's for hoping the next one is!
