Communist Cocktail

Communist Cocktail Recipe courtesy Rachel Maddow, as made on last night's Late Night With Jimmy Fallon.

I was a little wary of the lemon juice, as the bracing acidity can easily overpower a cocktail, but I proceeded as per the recipe and was pleasantly surprised. The orange juice and Cherry Heering go a long way toward softening the acidity and sweetening the drink, and the result is downright delicious. Seizing the means of production never tasted so good.

 1 ounce London dry gin
1 ounce orange juice
3/4 ounce lemon juice
1/2 ounce Cherry Heering Shake with ice.
Strain into a chilled cocktail glass.
