Thirsty Thursday: Gin & Grapefruit Cocktail

10 Feb

Today’s signature cocktail from Gourmet was chosen to compliment today’s Sunset on the Shoreline inspiration board. The peach pink color and refreshing citrus flavor are perfect for a warm summer night on the beach. This cocktail is simple with only three ingredients: grapefruit juice, gin and vermouth making it easier to create in mass quantity than some other more complex cocktails and it’s oh so pretty even without any fancy garnishes – not to say you couldn’t add one!

From Gourmet: In a cocktail shaker combine 1/4 cup each of gin and grapefruit juice, 1 tablespoon dry vermouth and a little crushed ice. Cover the container, shake the mixture well, and strain it into a stemmed glass over ice cubes. Makes 1 drink.
