This is how I keep the cold away; gingery grapefruit gimlet

gingery grapefruit gimlet
I know, you are all sick and tired of this white, fluffy stuff.  I have to admit that I love it and all the outdoor activities it beckons.  That said, on Friday I realized I too am tired of how it makes going about your everyday business a real problem.   What to do?

This cocktail suggests slowing down with a bit of sunshine is a satisfying solution.

  • 5 tbsp ginger syrup
  • 1 ruby red grapefruit
  • 3 oz vodka (i love using infused thyme vodka with this)


Press or squeeze the juice out of the grapefruit.  Pour into a cocktail shaker.  Add ginger syrup, vodka and a couple ice cubes.  Shake vigorously for a couple minutes.  Pour into your glass.  Enjoy by the fire and remember there are times when the snow and cold aren't all bad.
