Gorilla Gland

cocktail Jan 3, 2023

This is our riff of the Monkey Gland. A forgotten cocktail deserving a full revival. Based on orange gin from Copenhagen Distillery and clementine juice instead of orange juice, we thought Gorilla Gland was a fitting name. It turned out very nice, we especially like the colour!
