    alligirl's Note:

    This cocktail owes its cheeky name to its sexy scarlet color and its naughty alcohol content, with splashes of both jenever (Dutch gin) and orange liqueur. Calling jenever Dutch gin is a retronym, but I've done so purely for clarity. After all, gin originated in Holland. Genever was introduced to England by King William III, who was a Prince of Orange (the Dutch Royal Family) by birth, before he became the King of England. The British, with their love of abbreviations, changed the name jenever to gin. (There are many brands of Dutch gin, but the most common for Americans is probably the Ketel brand.) Taken from dutchfood.about.com and posted for ZWT.

      This very good, definately on the slightly tart side, the raspberry is dominant, you feel the alchohol more then you taste it at first. I used regular gin and Triple Sec. Straight it has a lot of body to it, I think it would be excellent with topping of something bubbly. Thanks for sharing Aligirl! Made by one of the Unrulies Under the Influence for ZWT 6.
