Cocktail Bar: Luigi

Friday 21 February 2014 by

Luigi, Cocktail, Alcohol, Orange, Gin, Vermouth, Cointreau, This is not a cocktail that I’d heard of before, but the moment I stumbled across it I knew immediately I had to try it. The Luigi is a tropical cocktail of gin, vermouth and Cointreau, and tastes oh-so orangey.

You will need:

  • A mixing glass
  • Cocktail glass – a highball will do
  • Ice

Luigi, Cocktail, Alcohol, Orange juice, Gin, Cointreau, Dry vermouth, Martini, Grenadine


  • 50ml gin
  • 25ml dry vermouth
  • Dash of Cointreau
  • 25ml grenadine
  • 25ml orange juice (or enough to top up if you want to dilute)

Luigi, Cocktail, Alcohol

You will need:

Mix in all the ingredients over ice in your mixing glass, and then strain in to your cocktail glass. If the 25ml of orange juice isn’t enough, now is the time to top up. As I said, it’s terribly orangey – the Cointreau and the orange juice combine for a super-summery taste, and the grenadine gives it that lovely sunset colour. Just enough to bring in sunshine!
