Easy way to make a Gin Daisy Cocktail

Gin is an alcoholic beverage of no less than 80 proof that possesses the flavor of juniper berries. Gin is produced in subtly different ways, from a wide range of herbal ingredients, which is why you can find a lot of distinct styles and brands when at the liquor store. After juniper, gin tends to be flavored with botanical/herbal, spice, floral, fruit or often a combination. The most popular gin drink is simply a Gin and Tonic.

Gin Daisy Cocktail Ingredients:
Ice cubes
Gin
Lemon juice
Simple syrup
Grenadine
Sparkling Water or Soda Water
Orange slice and sprig of mint for garnish

How To make a Gin Daisy:
You can serve your cocktail with ice or prepare it in a shaker. I prefer mine with ice in a glass. If you want to prepare your cocktail in a shaker you will fill half the shaker with ice cubes, add the gin, lemon juice, simple syrup, and grenadine syrup.
Shake well then strain into an old fashioned glass or your favorite glass for sipping.
Top up with sparkling water or soda water. I used lemon sparkling water.
Garnish with fresh mint and orange slice(s).
