The Park Avenue Gin Cocktail with PIneapple, Vermouth, Cointreau FI

The Park Avenue

This gin deliciousness, the Park Avenue, seems like a very strange drink to make. Fancy liquors and equally fancy glasses with pineapple juice? Where’s the umbrella? Exaggeration aside, this highly unique drink is quite tasty and great to take your time with.

Fancy sipping time.

Most home cocktail bars (and fridges) will have the necessary ingredients. Pick your favorite London Dry, add some Sweet Vermouth from the fridge, grab some pineapple juice, and add a few tablespoons of Cointreau. Easy peasy. There’s a distinct pineapple flavor, followed by a warm rush of very adult liqueurs in every sip.

The Park Avenue Gin Cocktail

This unique and delightful cocktail pairs gin, Cointreau, sweet vermouth, and pineapple juice. The Park Avenue gin cocktail is smooth, unusual, and sippable.

  • 2 Tbsp. Orange liqueur, like Cointreau


  • Combine all of your ingredients in a cocktail shaker.

Notes on the Park Avenue

This is a great drink. It’s “technically” a fruity martini, although once you add anything other that gin and vermouth to a glass, it’s not a martini anymore? Maybe?

Some recipes call for a cherry garnish, but I happened to have some dried oranges that pick up the Cointreau flavors. And, it’s such a lovely color that I didn’t want to muck up the look with a cherry. I save those for Old Fashioned drinks, anyway.

This drink may, or may not, have come around in the 1940’s. Either way, it’s easy to drink, albeit a bit strange. But that’s what experimenting is about, anyway.

Cheers, and make smart choices!
