Made famous at the Raffles Hotel in Singapore, our modern version of this classic tiki cocktail features dry gin, cherry brandy, Cointreau and a dash of orange Angostura bitters. It's shaken until icy cold with pineapple juice, fresh lime juice, and pomegranate grenadine, topped with a splash of fizzy refreshing club soda or seltzer water.
