It is a warm, breezy, late summer afternoon. Everyone’s moving outside to the deck and a gin martini just doesn’t feel like the right drink for the moment. Citrus Ruby Cocktail to the rescue! Grapefruit is one of those unappreciated fruits, but deeply enjoyed by some. So, let’s mix it with some citrus gin and kick it up a few notches.
- 2 oz of Black Button Citrus Gin
- 1 oz Ruby Red Grapefruit Juice
- 1 oz Honey Syrup
- Dash of Orange Bitters
- Lemon Peel
Pairing up with Black Button Distilling in June has given us the opportunity to create some fun summer cocktails using their Citrus Gin as the star of the recipes. It has found a home in our personal bars and we hope it has found a place in yours too.
- Combine the citrus gin, grapefruit, honey and bitters in a shaker
- Add ice, shake and double strain into a rocks glass over ice
- Twist a healthy piece of lemon peel and place on top
If you missed our other 3 recipes, why not catch up and have a citrus gin summer weekend?
Unwind today with the Cirtus Ruby after work and have an at home happy hour. Then hit the bar tomorrow night and ask for a Citrus Fitzgerald.
