Its origins can be traced back to the early 1920s and it is said to have been named after Prince George, the Duke of York, who later became King George VI. This cocktail is a perfect blend of sweet, tangy, and bubbly flavors that make it a crowd pleaser. The combination of 120ml of freshly squeezed orange juice, 30ml of grenadine and 120ml of crisp Champagne creates a unique and balanced flavor profile. The orange juice adds a citrusy tang while the grenadine adds a touch of sweetness. The Champagne not only adds a celebratory touch but also brings a light, effervescent quality to the cocktail. These three ingredients work harmoniously together to create a cocktail fit for royalty. Whether sipping it at a formal event or enjoying it at a casual gathering, the Duke of York is a classic cocktail that never fails to impress.
