Summer is here … and so are fresh summer cocktails! This one features red raspberries and red grapefruit along with Holland gin and honey liqueur for a brightly colored, lightly sweetened drink. Holland gin has less juniper flavor and more citrus notes than London dry gin, which is what we usually think of when we think “gin.”
We used Damrak gin and Barenjager honey liqueur, but feel free to use your favorites!
2 oz Holland gin
1 oz honey liqueur
1 oz red grapefruit juice
Muddle together the raspberries and honey liqueur at the bottom of your shaker. Pour in gin and grapefruit juice, then shake with ice for about 15 seconds. Use an ultra-fine strainer and pour into a chilled cocktail glass.
