Celebration

Celebration SAM_2432The Celebration

1/3 daiquiri rum
1/3 grapefruit juice
1/6 Groseille Syrup (Red Currant Syrup)
1/6 Gin

Shake

This cocktail is credited to J. W. Fish, and its first appearance in print is in the W. J. Tarling’s, 1937 Cafe Royal Cocktail Book

Groseille (Red Currant) Syrup is not something many people keep in their bar supplies. Fortunately the Internet Cocktail Database has a link to a recipe to make your own (Groseille Syrup link).  They also suggest Grenadine as a substitute, although I would recommend that you use only half the sweetener if you replace the groseille syrup with grenadine.

Here is a variation using simple syrup rather than groseille syrup
