Tanqueray No. TEN adds a zesty citrus base for this Ramos Gin Fizz variation and is slightly overproof so it can stand up to all the nonalcoholic modifiers. LEJAY Cassis and the blueberry puree and blue fruit and a gorgeous lavender color. Amaretto adds sweetness and nuttiness, while the orange bitters keep everything from being too sweet.
