In ancient beliefs, the best place to end up is the Seventh Heaven:

  • 1.75 ounces gin
  • 0.50 ounce maraschino liqueur
  • 0.25 ounce grapefruit juice

Shake in an iced cocktail shaker, and strain into a cocktail glass. Garnish with a sprig of mint.

Short and sweet, this is a nice little cocktail. It is similar to several others, such as the La Floridita Daiquiri (switch the gin for rum) and the Aviation (switch the grapefruit for lemon).

As a fan of both of those drinks, I liked this one as well. It’s cool and refreshing and not too big, which made it a nice drink to start off the weekend. All in all I’d rather have an Aviation, but this was a nice change.

Rating: 4/5

Notes: I used my go-to Broker’s Gin and Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur.
