The Harpoon*

The Harpoon has become a favorite cocktail around our house. Of course we modified it, substituting gin for vodka:

1½ oz gin
½ oz orange liqueur
¼ oz lime juice
enough cranberry juice to color

Mix and shake over ice.  Pour into chilled cocktail glass. Garnish with a slice of lime.

The Harpoon is related to the Maggie, but less limey. Also, the Maggie looks different, lacking the socialist red hue.


  1. Why not use vodka? Stoli Elit would make it very smooth.

  2. Why not vodka?

    Prejudice and personal preference when it comes to the clear spirits. I will try some of this on the weekend.
