When I read it won a Las Vegas competition called Shake it Up: The Battle of the Mixologists, I had to whip up a batch of my own.
It has a gorgeous ruby color which makes it perfect to serve around the holidays (or any time as far as I’m concerned)!
1 cup – Freshly Squeezed Ruby Red Grapefruit Juice
1/2 cup – Freshly Squeezed Lemon Juice
1/2 cup – Simple Syrup (combine equal parts water and sugar, boil until dissolved, cool completely)
Lemon Peel (for garnish)
Note: You’ll need around 1-1/2 half grapefruits and 3 large lemons
Pour into a tall glass and garnish with a lemon twist and a fresh basil leaf.
Get ready for your guests to demand the recipe.
P.S. This cocktail is so gorgeous, you’ll need an equally special glass in which to serve it.
