This mixed drink gives a fun, earthy twist to the traditional salty dog cocktail. A simple syrup is infused with rosemary from the herb garden and combined with freshly squeezed red grapefruit juice and vodka. It’s served in a glass with a rim of fine ground sea salt.
It has come to my attention this week that there are quite a few people out there who do not like grapefruit.
I suspect that much like those who do not like kale, they cannot be trusted.
To be honest, I’m not quite sure when I turned the corner on the stuff. For years, it was a grandma and grandpa breakfast accompaniment. Served alongside poached eggs and whole grain toast.
For the record, I refuse to think that my love for the fruit correlates with getting older. Proof is in in the fact that I’ve loved grapefruit for at least 10 years now.
I think it’s because I was introduced to red grapefruit.
