We’re oh-so-close to Spring! This means that a lot of the exciting fruits we’re waiting to cocktail with aren’t in season yet. Don’t fret. Our friend the grapefruit is here to help. It’s one of my favorite cocktail ingredients, because of its subtle tartness and light touch. Grapefruit cocktails are refreshing and a little unexpected. Here are a few for you to sip on:
Grapefruit Margarita ~ This twist on the Margarita offers a nice bridge between a tart and strong traditional Margarita and the sweet and fruity ones, like a Strawberry Margarita. So good!
Dirty Diana ~ “Tastes like fresh grapefruit sprinkled with brown sugar” + dark rum? I’m in.
Thyme Paloma ~ Tequila or mezcal pair so well with fresh grapefruit, and a little thyme adds a new herbal dimension to this classic refresher.
Hemingway Daiquiri ~ Hemingway knew how to write, yes. But he also knew how to drink. Adding a little grapefruit to a traditional Daiquiri was a great idea.
Little Tybee Latitude ~ Basil, grapefruit, and gin are best friends. Yum. Best friends, I say!
