Gin Daisy

A medium-tall drink, the Daisy is a fruit juice–based cocktail that is sweetened with grenadine or a red liqueur. Yet another “old-timer” that has more than a century under its belt, Daisies are a sumptuous relative of Cobblers and Fixes. A Daisy always has a red tinge to it and is occasionally finished by a compatible liqueur floated on top at the last second. The name Daisy seemingly derives not from the flower but from slang for something extraordinary—from which the word doozy is also derived.

To separate them from other drinks, Daisies were often served in elaborate, heavy glassware or silver mugs. The latter also keeps the drink cool.
