What up, late winter. You go on with your bad self and your delicious citrus. Let’s make you into a cocktail that we can enjoy in the SUNLIGHT now available to us after work.
Real talk: this drink happened because I sat on a bunch of grapefruit for a little too long. More like they sat on my dining room table too long. Sometimes I am a person that likes to look at pretty things rather than eat them. I’m sure you understand.
In about seven minutes you too can juice some grapefruits, strain the juice into a carafe, mix it with gin, and be on with life. Do it. Your day will be better.
2 oz gin
4 oz grapefruit juice
Greyhounds are traditionally made with vodka but I find the herbal-y complexity of gin much more appealing.
Combine the gin and grapefruit juice over ice in a rocks glass. Garnish with a wedge of lime, grapefruit, or nothing at all.
