Carefully clean the work surface in your kitchen and also all of the utensils and glasses that you will be using to prepare this delightful cocktail. Remember to also wash your hands whenever you handle food items.
Fill a cocktail shaker with ice and the first three ingredients, namely, gin, lemon juice and maraschino liqueur. Remember that you can use your own preference when it comes to adding the various ingredients. Maraschino liqueur can be relatively strong and you should be careful to not add too much of this liqueur.
Shake vigorously until the ingredients have been mixed properly. Remember you will want to shake everything completely so that you get a nice blend with an excellent texture. Try not to make this cocktail too thin otherwise it will definitely lose its charm. The key is to maintain the perfect balance of ingredients with your personal preferences or tastes.
Pour the mixture in a cold cocktail glass and serve to your guests. You will want to prepare this cocktail right before serving so that it is fresh and chilled.
Garnish with a lemon twist or any other item that you feel is suitable. Remember it is entirely up to you how you prepare the necessary ingredients as you can add your own personal touch by adding or subtracting a particular ingredient from the list.
