England and France

Matthew Kelly/Supercall

They may be traditional rivals in many areas (sports, culture, politics), but France and England get along just fine in this simple, delicious cocktail. Tanqueray No. TEN, from London, is made with fresh whole citrus, including grapefruits, limes, and oranges, so it naturally pairs with the grapefruit juice, while the quinquina, from France, brings a light sweetness and a complex herbal flavor to the party. Diplomacy: it’s a beautiful thing!

Please drink responsibly.
