The Communist

Posted by Reese on 2011-01-05 @ 02:13pm

My schedule has gotten a bit wonky lately and, for that, I’m sorry.  But, on time or not, we will soldier on and do our share of drinking.  This time I’m coming to you with the Communist cocktail.  Named, I have no doubt, in a time when communists were a much scarier possibility and were likely being searched out and punished.  Those times have, for the most part, gone by the way side, but luckily we’re left with what looks like a tasty cocktail.  Stay tuned for my thoughts as well as more reviews and other tips.

The Communist (Vintage Spirits and Forgotten Cocktails)
1 oz Gin
1 oz Orange Juice
1/2 oz Cherry Brandy
3/4 oz Lemon Juice
