Red Lion Cocktail

red lion cocktail

Recently I stumbled onto a cocktail which I associated with a hair metal band that I loved in middle school (the White Lion), and I was pretty surprised to find another variant on the lion theme in a totally different cocktail book: What, When, Where, and How to Drink.

Compared to the White Lion (which is sort of red), the Red Lion is a pale yellow color (confusing, I know), but I suppose drinks can be named whatever people wanna name them. Regardless of color confusion, you should definitely try this refreshing lion out:

Red Lion Cocktail

  • 1 oz gin
  • 1 oz triple sec
  • 1/2 oz lemon juice
  • 1/2 oz orange juice
  • shake and strain into a chilled cocktail glass
  • garnish with a lemon peel
