The Oscar's are this weekend and I can't wait to watch the Red Carpet and pick out my favorite dresses of the night! Yes, I am excited about seeing what movies and actors win for the night, but it's really all about the fashion for me! I always see where people have Oscar viewing parties, and they seem like so much fun. My party usually exists of me, some stretchy pants, and my cocktail of choice, and I gotta say it's a pretty good time. Whether or not you are hosting a viewing party or are like me, and having a little partay for yourself, my Grapefruit French Gimlet is the cocktail you should be drinking!
I love a simple cocktail that can be made in two minutes and this drink is about as easy as it gets. Three ingredients and you have yourself a mighty good cocktail that any bartender would be proud of. I'm still in my citrus phase because I know it's going to be over soon and I am not quite ready to let it go! The grapefruits have been so sweet, they were the natural ingredient of choice when deciding what cocktail I wanted to share with you today!
And even if watching the Oscar's isn't your thing, you might be snowed in and that's a good a reason as any to have a cocktail if you ask me. That, and tomorrow is Friday and my birthday is Saturday...I mean the reasons go on and on!
Bottom line...fix yourself a Grapefruit French Gimlet, sooner than later.
- 1 Oz. Dry Gin
- 1 Oz. St. Germaine
- Freshly Squeezed Grapefruit Juice (about 1/4 Cup)
- Add all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice and then pour into your cocktail glass of choice. Serve immediately.
I am all about this cocktail right now and I can't wait for you to try it out for yourself! Cheers!
