Grapefruit Cocktail (variation)
The following Cocktail although apparently harmless, is sometimes liable to be snappy. It is a variation of the Grapefruit Cocktail:- Take three and a half glasses of Gin (1 1/2 oz Plymouth Gin) and the juice of 1 1/2 good-sized Grapefruit (1 1/2 oz freshly squeezed white grapefruit juice). Sugar to taste (1 tsp caster sugar), plenty of ice. Shake and serve.
This is another good simple cocktail, but I used too much sugar. A half teaspoon (or less) would have been plenty.
This post is one in a series documenting my ongoing effort to make all of the cocktails in the Savoy Cocktail Book, starting at the first, Abbey, and ending at the last, Zed.
