It has already been two years since we introduced you to the Negroni in this magazine - an absolute classic cocktail. So it is time to expand the repertoire. In fact, with a load of grapefruit: a little bit sparkling, a little bit bitter and a little bit sweet. But definitely summerly-fruity.
The Grapefruit Negroni is a perfect match for this summer, that might look different than we had planned it… A lot of festivals, concerts and the break under palms will have to be cancelled. Even wild party nights on the rooftop bar have to wait and who is really getting some bad luck is even standing in front of closed doors at the public pool - due to admission limitations.
Summer mood? We will take care of that ourselves!
We at FLSK are not ready to give up on the light and lively summer feeling. And you should not do that either! Because all you really need is already here: the city or nature in front of your door, your lovely decorated home and of course you and your dear ones!
DIY is the motto when we are talking about a carefree feeling for life. And I am not saying that you should start knitting! Mixing is more than enough. The Grapefruit Negroni does actual wonders! Because this irresistible drink tastes like sun flooded days at the pool, lazy afternoons in the hanging chair and mild evenings on the balcony! It tickles your tasting buds before dinner, parties with you and your friends through the night or is ready if the next morning is bringing you a hangover! So let’s go straight to your bar!
This is what you will need:
- 1 Organic Grapefruit
- 3 cl Gin
- 3 cl Campari
- 3 cl Wormwood
- 1 hand full of ice cubes
It's that simple:
- Wash the grapefruit, dry it and zester cut thin stripes from one of the halves.
- Squeeze the Grapefruit until you get 150 ml of juice.
- Put the ice cubes and the zests in a tall glass.
- Put the Gin, Campari, wormwood and grapefruit juice into it and mix it all together.
