Grapefruit-Bourbon Cocktail

Posted in Manna on May 9th, 2014 by Annabelle – 2 Comments

Welcome to this month’s Let’s Lunch fruit fiesta! It’s still slim pickings here in New England as far as seasonal fruit goes, so I thought I’d share one of my favorite cocktails with the last of the winter citrus.  Grapefruit may be a winter fruit, but this cocktail is pleasantly summery to counteract all the gray weather we’ve had lately.  And any good fiesta needs a drink, right?

Grapefruit-Bourbon Cocktail

1 1/2 ounces bourbon
3 ounces fresh pink grapefruit juice
1/4 ounce simple syrup
3 mint leaves
Mint sprig to garnish

Combine first four ingredients in a shaker and shake with ice.  Strain into a rocks glass with ice and garnish with mint sprig.  Enjoy!
