Now, grapefruit juice--that's another story altogether. Tart and mouthwatering, it's always a fabulous addition to lots of cocktails, and I gravitate towards it on cocktail lists. I've seen it popping up on the area's drinks menus this time of year--'tis the season for the big tart sphere. Ruby Red is my favorite, but I also enjoy pink or white, or any other variety.
Last week I dined at Clarendon's Liberty Tavern, where I loved the Grapefruit Buck cocktail. It's made with Absolut Ruby Red Vodka, Elderflower Cordial (I assume St. Germain...), grapefruit juice and Barrett's ginger beer, served over ice in a tall glass. It's citrusy, with just a hint of flowers from the St. Germain, and a fizzy ginger kick. It went down WAY too easily...
