New School Gin Daisy | Cocktail Party

New School Gin Daisy

New School Gin Daisy cocktail with gin, lemon juice, grenadine, simple syrup, and sparkling water

The original recipe for the Gin Daisy calls for a healthy pour of gin, plus lemon juice and orange liqueur. It’s refreshing and tart, but strong and a little dry. Somewhere along the way, the recipe began to tranform, eventually becoming the New School Gin Daisy: swapping the orange liqueur for grenadine, and softening the gin with a smaller pour and a bit of simple syrup.

It’s delicious both ways, but the New School variant edges out the classic on the hottest summer days, when all we crave is a refreshing highball that won’t put us to sleep.
