It is a nice pairing with summer dinners, as it is sweet and fruity as opposed to a gin martini. A cocktail classic in the early days of the cocktail was made with gin and apricot brandy. Orange juice provides a bright citrus touch that makes the drink taste more delicious because of how the brandy adds a sweet fruit contrast to the botanical flavoring and drier profile of the gin. Adding the brandy to the gin creates a more enjoyable drink.
