In the Boston Cocktail, a dry London gin is combined with apricot brandy for a delicious drink. A subtle taste of botanicals from the gin contrasts with the sweet fruitiness of the brandy and grenadine, with a little tartness from the lemon balancing everything out. The flavor is a little more on the sweet side than some people may prefer, but adjustments can be made. On the other hand, if you have a little bit of a sweet tooth, but would like to avoid overdoing it, this is a great gin cocktail to try.
