4 shots out of 5
I FINALLY found grapefruit juice at the grocery store!! The store I used to get it at has closed due to remodeling, so I now go to a different store which has NOT had it every time I go. Last night was a breakthrough! My new store now has it and I couldn't be happier!! I just hope they will still have it when this one is gone.
I gave tonight's cocktail 4 shots out of 5. It took me a few sips to get "re-acquainted" with the taste of grapefruit juice, but once I did.......game on! I am truly enjoying this cocktail and kinda wish I had made a bigger one. I like the fact that each ingredient is equal in quantity to the others. I can taste all three ingredients in here and they compliment each other nicely. This would be a good mellow tasting cocktail to have when I'm not feeling the fruitier, sweeter cocktails. Tonight I am using one of my new cocktail glasses that I had purchased recentely at our local BevMo...........in case you were wondering!
Here is the recipe for a Twisted Pink:
- 1 oz coconut rum
- 1 oz cranberry juice
- 1 oz grapefruit juice
In a cocktail glass add crushed ice and all ingredients above. Stir well and enjoy!
