Last-Gasp-of-Summer Cocktail [Rhonda]
Summer's just a distant memory. And even though this cocktail brings lots of refreshing vibes with it, it can go year-round as a fun kick-off to an evening with friends (just lose the tropical summery napkin).
Simply Red brand grapefruit juice, or freshly squeezed
A splash of St. Germain elderflower liqueur
A slice of grapefruit and a slice of lime for garnish
Sugar the rim first: run the sliced lime around the edge of the glass, dip rim into saucer of sugar (I used white, pink and orange sugar for this photo).
Pour vodka into glass, add elderflower liqueur, squeeze the lime juice in, then add the grapefruit juice, stir, add ice cubes, place garnish on rim and serve.
Suggested soundtrack: Katy Perry's "California Gurls"
