It is a delightful blend of dry gin as the base spirit, brightened by the tartness of fresh lime juice and the subtle sweetness and complexity of the grapefruit juice. The sugar syrup adds a smooth sweetness that balances the acidity, while the maraschino cherry liqueur imparts a faint hint of almond and cherry notes that provide a luxurious depth to this sophisticated drink. Typically served in a cocktail glass, the Dorchester presents a harmonious mix of fruit flavors with a refined edge, making it an excellent choice for those who appreciate the interplay of sweet and sour in their libations.
