An English Rose is a delightful variation of the classic Martini. It's sweeter, using apricot brandy, grenadine, and lemon for flavor, and it makes a fabulous before dinner drink.

There are a few drinks like the Paradise, Thanksgiving Cocktail and La Habana that also pair gin with apricot brandy, which is a fantastic combination. You may want to experiment with them all to see which you enjoy best.
