Grapefruit is in season now, and it’s a fantastic cocktail ingredient! This creation comes from Grey Goose Vodka, created in honor of the upcoming Royal Wedding. While I don’t count myself among the people following these impending British nuptials, you can definitely count me among those who enjoy simple and tasty cocktails.
2 parts vodka
3 wedges peeled and seeded grapefruit
½ teaspoon sugar
1 part triple sec
Turbinado sugar for rimming the glass
Rub the grapefruit around the outside edge of the glass and then roll in the turbinado sugar. Place the sugar and grapefruit in the bottom of a shaker, muddle thoroughly. Add vodka, triple sec and ice. Shake well. Pour drink including ice and grapefruit into a rimmed rocks glass.
