Pucker up to simple pre-Prohibition elegance!  We like our Gin Sour, well, sour!  But feel free to add more sweetness to taste.  This is a perfect trio of ingredients, but you can always gussy it  up with a few dashes of bitters (making it a Fitzgerald), a soda top up (making it a Gin Fizz), or with an egg white, if you wish, to give it more body.

*Half a teaspoon of superfine sugar can be used in lieu of the simple syrup.


  • 2 oz Victoria Gin
  • 3/4 oz Lemon Juice
  • 1/2 oz Simple Syrup


Combine ingredients in a shaker and shake with ice.  Strain into ice-filled glass.  Garnish with a twist of your choice, lemon wheel, and/or fine cherry.
