You may never have heard of the Paradise gin cocktail, but don’t be fooled—the Paradise is a classic cocktail, good for anything from brunch to dinner, and the original recipe dates back to Harry Craddock’s 1930 cookbook, The Savoy Cocktail Book.

This fruity aperitif calls for three main ingredients—gin, apricot brandy (also called apricot liqueur), and orange juice—and is traditionally served in a chilled Martini glass, though many bars opt for a Hurricane glass to give it an especially tropical vibe. The Paradise is often topped with a splash of lemon juice.
