Author Notes: Using up a grapefruit and some left over lemon juice, I tripped over this tasty cocktail. Perhaps better suited for warmer months, it was a lovely acoutrement to my cooking adventures last night.JRDsquared

Makes 2

  • 3/4 cup fresh squeezed grapefruit juice
  • 1 tablespoon lemon Juice

  1. Combine grapefruit and lemon juices together.
  2. Fill a shaker with ice and pour juice, gin, and sweet vermouth.
  3. Shake, shake, shake.
  4. Pour up or over rocks (it is a strong cocktail, so I'd suggest over rocks unless you're up for kick in the pants).
  5. Enjoy.
