2/3 Dry Gin (1 3/4 oz Bluecoat)
2 dash Grapefruit Juice (3/4 oz)
2 dash Raspberry Syrup (1/2 oz Royal Rose's)
1 dash Orange Bitters (Regan's)

Shake with ice and strain into a cocktail glass. I added a grapefruit twist.
Two Fridays ago, I was in need of some end of the night punctuation, so I took a gander at Pioneers of Mixing at Elite Bars: 1903-1933 and spotted the Orlando. Overall, the combination reminded me of a gin Blinker Cocktail which sounded rather refreshing. Once prepared, it offered a grapefruit aroma that led into a grapefruit and berry sip. Finally, the swallow was a delightful old school pairing of gin and raspberry flavors.
