Cocktail Bar: Millenium Cocktail

Friday 27 December 2013 by

The New Year is the perfect time for a lot of things. Resolutions, new starts, and plenty of parties with friends and family. It’s also an ideal time to show off with your cocktail knowledge! Take your pick from this great selection of recipes – one for everyone! I’m too much of a fan of gin to pass this one up, so I’ve rustled up the Millenium cocktail in readiness to see in 2014. There are lots of Millenium versions, but this has to be my favourite, with its gin base and warming aftertaste.

Millenium, Cocktail, Alcohol, Bors, Cherry brandy, Orange juice, Ginger ale, Gordon's gin,

You will need:

  • Cocktail shaker
  • Martini glass

Millenium, Cocktail, New Year, Alcohol, Cherry brandy, Gin, Orange juice


  • 30ml gin
  • 15ml cherry brandy
  • 45ml orange juice
  • Splash of ginger ale

Millenium, Cocktail, Alcohol, Orange juice, Ginger ale, Cherry brandy, Gin

How to make it:

Fill the cocktail shaker with ice and add the gin, cherry brandy and orange juice and shake well. Strain in to a chilled cocktail glass and top up with ginger ale.

The sharpness of the gin is nicely offset by the sweetness of the cherry brandy, and both are balanced by the orange juice. The small addition of the ginger ale adds some fizz and warmth on the tongue. Perfect for quaffing at the party!

Happy New Year folks.
