South Gate Parisian Cocktail

This slightly sweet, refreshing cocktail is a Valentine's Day special on the seasonally-changing menu at South Gate restaurant in New York City. Although created by restaurant manager Mychael Faison, he recommends asking Oliver behind the bar to make it for you because he does it best. 

Ingredients

  • 1 ounce POM Cranberry juice
  • 1 ounce fresh orange juice
  • ½ ounce vodka, preferably Kettle One
  • ¾ ounce Grand Marnier
  • Ice
  • Lemon twist, for garnish

Directions

In a cocktail shaker, combine all of the ingredients except for the garnish. Shake and strain into a martini glass. Garnish with a lemon twist. 

Cocktail Shopping Tip

Buy your booze in bulk – transfer what you need into smaller bottles to stock your bar – you’ll save money and have enough leftover for your next party.

Cocktail Cooking Tip

Add another layer of flavor to your cocktails by making your own simple syrup – combine equal parts sugar and water with whatever aromatics you like – fresh herbs, whole spices, citrus, or chile peppers – heat to dissolve sugar and strain before using.
