To make a Douglas Fairbanks cocktail, you will need a few simple ingredients and a shaker. First, gather some fresh lemon juice, orange juice, gin, and grenadine. You will also need some ice cubes and a cocktail glass to serve the drink in.
Start by filling the shaker halfway with ice cubes. Then, add 2 ounces of gin, 1 ounce of fresh lemon juice, and 1 ounce of fresh orange juice to the shaker. Finally, add 1/2 ounce of grenadine to give the cocktail its signature pink color.
