Thirsty Thursday: Skinny Grapefruit Gin Cocktail
Hot weather, hot’n’spicy barbecue, and hot guys with even hotter accents who call you “darlin’” and open the door for you…Yep, we just love the south!
And right about now we’re dreaming of sitting porchside with a Ryan-Gosling-in-The-Notebook look-alike sipping a sweet cocktail out of a mason jar. Mmm–getting a little hot just imagining it? Well we’ve found a delish skinny grapefruit gin cocktail from The Realistic Nutritionist that is sure to cool you down. Super refreshing and totally natural…Yup, we think we found our new southern comfort!
Prep time: 5 minutes
4 ounces gin
6 ounces freshly squeezed grapefruit juice
Dash of sugar (optional for sweetness)
Use a citrus juicer to extract juice from grapefruit. Remove seeds. Pour grapefruit juice into a chilled martini mixer with ice. Add gin and shake. Pour mixture over ice cubes in a chilled glass and garnish with fresh mint.
Yields 2 cocktails
