Gin Daisy (Old)

November 18, 2021
Gin Daisy Orange Liqueur Lemon Juice Soda Water Iced Cocktail

This version of the Daisy is a variation of the original Brandy Daisy. The basic Gin Daisy first gained popularity in the late 19th century following the demand for the original. This old-school version is more spirit forward than its new-school variation that focuses more on the citrus and liqueur components.

The Daisy includes a citrus juice and is most commonly composed with lemon juice but can also use lime or grapefruit juice instead. There’s also a focus on a liqueur or cordial like yellow Chartreuse, maraschino or orange liqueur. The addition of these distinguishes the Daisy from other sours.


2 oz GIN
.75 oz LEMON JUICE, Fresh is best
