Clink: The Sapphire Ace

The Sapphire Ace.

By Jaweed Kaleem

In Key Biscayne, they’re serving up an ace — the Sapphire Ace, a bright orange cocktail created for tennis fans at this weekend’s Sony Ericsson Open by the makers of Bombay Sapphire Gin.

“Gin traditionally been enjoyed as a summertime drink, especially on a lazy Sunday afternoon,” says consultant James Moreland, who came up with the drink. “It’s perfect for watching tennis.”


Combine 1¼ ounce gin, 1½ ounce mango juice, ½ ounce apricot brandy, ½ ounce simple
syrup, a squeeze of lime and ice in a cocktail shaker; shake.

Strain into a rocks glass, top with ¼ ounce grenadine and garnish with a lime wedge.


The Sapphire Ace is $9.50 at the Sapphire Lounge at the Crandon Tennis Center, 7300 Crandon Blvd.,
Key Biscayne
