Paradise

The Paradise is an IBA official cocktail, and is classified as a “pre-dinner” drink, an apéritif.

The earliest known in-print recipe for the Paradise Cocktail was written by Harry Craddock in 1930. This cocktail is prepared using gin, apricot brandy (apricot liqueur), and orange juice in a 2:1:1 ratio, with a splash of lemon juice.[1]
