COCKTAIL HOUR: CUCUMBER GRAPEFRUIT & GIN FIZ
Come Summer time you can find me dabbling in the kitchen trying to find a new concoction to quench my thirst. This hot evening left me with this delicious drink, I like to call it my Cucumber Grapefruit and Gin Fiz.
I decided to experiment with and the result was this drink something so refreshing. delicious. and so so so satisfying after a long hot day. The flavors mingle together, crisp and tart with a hint of spice from the Ginger Beer. I also picked up these little sphere ice molds at target and I absolutely love them. They cool your drink without diluting the important stuff. Which is really important in my opinion.
CUCUMBER GRAPEFRUIT GIN FIZ
1 pink grapefruit
cucumber (3-4 slices)
gin of choice
ginger beer (this is a non-alcoholic soda)
Place a couple slices of cucumber in the bottom of your glass, muddle slightly. Add ice and 1 oz of gin. Top with equal portions fresh squeezed Grapefruit and Ginger Beer. Garnish with Cucumber and Grapefruit rind.
