Lemons and limes dominate drink recipes, but let’s not forget about our other citrus friend the grapefruit. It’s not as tart, but it has a vibrant flavor that really zings in cocktail. My favorite variety is the Ruby Red, so I suggest using those if you can find them.
So grab some Ruby Reds and get shakin’:
Spicy Grapefruit Margarita ~ Add some oomph to your grapefruit margarita with some habanero chiles.
Grapefruit Aperol Margarita ~ Another tasty twist for grapefruit margaritas is to add the Italian aperitif Aperol.
The Plantation ~ Gin, grapefruit, lime, Cointreau, and basil. That just sounds amazing yet simple!
Scottish Dream ~ Whiskey and cinnamon are deep, rich flavors so they make an interesting counterpoint to the lightness of grapefruit.
Grapefruit Negroni ~ Grapefruit and Campari are a natural pairing, so it’s only natural to try it in a Negroni!
