The Communist Cocktail
1 oz London Dry Gin
1 oz Orange Juice
3/4 oz Lemon Juice
1/2 oz Cherry Heering

To me this was simply a good drink, not great. I enjoyed it to be sure, but it just did not wow me. I guess that’s ok, not every drink can be a love or a hate, there have to be some in the middle ground. The orange juice provides the backbone to this drink in my opinion. Perhaps if I had used fresh squeezed orange it might have been better, but nonetheless I tried. The gin plays a nice aromatic role in the beginnings of the drink followed up by the cherry heering on the finish. The lemon juice definitely keeps the drink in balance by tempering the sweet flavors of the orange and cherry heering.
