Cocktail Club: Grapefruit Fizz

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. 

grapefruit cocktail
  • 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!
