This week was a fun milestone for me: I invented my first cocktail!
I use the word "invented" somewhat loosely since I'm sure someone else has already thought up this drink or something very similar. However, I followed no recipes, did no Pinterest research, and simply imagined this drink before I made it.
I think that counts as inventing... Or at least creating!
I was super pleased with myself because this Grapefruit Fizz, as I've called it, is wonderfully delicious and refreshing! The perfect fruity-fizzy drink for summer.
- 2 oz gin
- 1-2 oz grapefruit juice -- depending on how strong you like your drinks ;)
- lime juice (from 1/2 a lime)
- 3-4 dashes grapefruit bitters
- splash of tonic water
- lemon or lime zest for garnish
Shake gin, grapefruit juice, lime juice, and bitters together with ice in a cocktail shaker. Pour over fresh ice in a rocks glass and top with a splash of tonic. Garnish with zest and enjoy!
What's your favourite summer cocktail?
