Looking to savor the last bit of citrus season, I came across this tasty recipe featuring fresh grapefruit juice and one of my all-time-favorite bar essentials - St-Germain Elderflower Liqueur.
If you haven't tried it yet, you should. It mixes easily with almost everything and adds a distinct flavor - something every well-crafted artisan cocktail requires. Plus, I love the bottle. It kicks up the style factor on any bar - an awesome host/hostess gift for the mixologist(s) in your life.
Served up or on the rocks, it's the perfect balance of tangy, smoky, smooth.
- 1 1/2 parts Tequila Blanco
- 1/2 part Del Maguey Mezcal
- 1 part St-Germain
- 1/2 part fresh lime juice
- 3/4 part fresh grapefruit juice
Rim glass with a mixture of chili powder, sea salt and dash of cayenne. Shake all ingredients over ice and strain into glass - with or without ice.
You like gin more than you like tequila? Here's another St-Germain infused concoction to try.
