Test Kitchen Notes

This grapefruit-forward riff on a classic Moscow Mule from Esteban Castillo, the cookbook author and photographer behind Chicano Eats, is exactly what you might want to sip on a warm spring day or hot summer evening. This refresher takes minutes—seconds even—to stir up, and calls on a few bar-cart staples: Fever-Tree Sparkling Pink Grapefruit (for citrusy effervescence) and Ginger Beer (it’s full-bodied, with just the right spice), vodka, and fresh lime juice. Seriously, that’s it. In fact, the hardest part of pulling this cocktail together is popping the cap off the mixers.

This recipe is shared in partnership with Fever-Tree. —The Editors

What You'll Need
  • 4 ounces Fever-Tree Sparkling Pink Grapefruit
  • 2 ounces vodka
  • 1 ounce freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 3 ounces Fever-Tree Ginger Beer
  • Fresh grapefruit wedge, for garnish
  1. In a glass or copper mug filled with ice, mix together the Sparkling Pink Grapefruit, vodka, and lime juice. Top the drink off with Ginger Beer and garnish with a fresh grapefruit wedge.

Just a head's up... with every grapefruit recipe of any sort, there needs to be a health and safety disclaimer advising to check with your dr or drugstore if you are on any kind of medication as grapefruit is contraindicated with so many Rx. Safety first. So many people don't know this.
