#DOTW: Winter Citrus Sour Cocktail

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:

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.

Hello there, fellow foodies! My name is Erica, I was born and raised in Germany, and moved to the US, New York City to be exact, in July of 1987. I have worked most of my time here in the Big Apple as a bartender, but my true love is food. I cook just about every day, I search for good food everywhere, and pretty much always find it. I don't consider myself a food critic, I don't have the culinary background for that kind of expertise. I do however know good food, good chefs and good restaurants. I report back about my culinary adventures, and I choose to leave out my unsatisfactory experiences. We have enough negativity in our daily lives, I don't want to add to that. All the recipes in my FROM MY KITCHEN and DOTW blogs are cooked and prepared by me. All pictures are taken by me. I don't always eat everything you see in my pictures, but you bet your buns, I do try everything. Last but not least, you should know that I am a huge Top Chef fan. I have never missed an episode of the Bravo TV show. I have at this point visited almost 20 restaurants run by Top Chef contestants, and I'm continuously impressed by their skill, drive and passion. So I will continue to seek them out, and I hope you join me in my journey!
