Let’s get in another winter cocktail before the winter actually ends. March 30th is the first day of spring, and it can’t come fast enough. We had enough snow to last us for a while! I mean, honestly, this cocktail is probably good for any season or occasion, it’s loaded with vitamin C, but it’s also very refreshing, as it would be the case with any citrus fruits. It requires grapefruits, and I chose Ruby Red grapefruits, just to get that pretty pink color, but of course traditional grapefruits are just fine. This was one of my favorite cocktails so far, and I hope you love it as much as I did!
What you’ll need:
- 2 oz Beefeater Gin
- 2 oz freshly squeezed grapefruit juice
- 1 oz fresh lemon juice
- 1/2 oz Cointreau
- 1/2 simple syrup
Combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice, shake well. Strain into a Coupe glass (or Martini glass), garnish with a thin slice of grapefruit.
