The Paradise is one of the lesser known classic cocktails that has long been a favorite aperitif. Where the Martini is dry, the Paradise is sweet and fruity and a nice precursor to summer dinners.

If you can, use fresh squeezed orange juice to complement the gin and for the gin, a London dry like Martin Miller's is perfect.

This is the up version of the drink, but a Paradise shooter is also pretty popular. To make that one, simply shake up equal parts of these three ingredients and strain it into a shot glass.
