Grapefruit and Bourbon Together Again

I am your master, now drink me

I like making drinks for Greg, but I have to adjust to his tastes. If I add a bit of simple syrup to take the edge off, he’ll find it too sweet. Cocktails I find a bit too strong are sometimes just up his alley. (Although we once followed a Martha Stewart mojito recipe to the letter and he got a headache after just one.) We often end up making two slightly different versions of the same drink, like the White Lady. (Note to self, you haven’t had a White Lady in ages.)

In any case, this drink hit the spot for both of us. It’s a bit like a Blinder, but packs more punch.

Grapefruit and Bourbon Cocktail

  • 1 1/2 oz bourbon
  • 1/2 triple sec
  • 3 oz ruby red grapefruit juice
  • 1/4 tsp grenadine

Pour grenadine in the bottom of a martini glass. Pour remaining ingredients in a shaker with ice. Shake, then strain into the martini glass. Garnish with a cherry.

    Hi Katherine ! I love bourbon & this looks wonderful. “So many drinks…. so little time!” ; o )

  3. I’ll bet this is delicious, with the grapefruit taking down the sweet factor a bit.
