All These Things That I Love - Drinks Edition - July 2018
A monthly roundup of things that give me life...
This summer, I've decided to focus on one of the most popular parts of this blog series... THE DRINKS.
I do some version of this cocktail every summer by the pool. It's light, it's refreshing, it's pink.
It's my version of a paloma. There are many interpretations of this grapefruit-based cocktail from the super fancy to the easy.
(Spoiler alert: I like easy.)
I'm also trying to cut carbs so I'm going to give you my preferred recipe and the lighter, sugar free options.
But you do you. Mix it up. Go all out on MORE SUGAR. Or not.
My current recipe is:
1 shot of a good vodka (also recommended, Deep Eddy Grapefruit Vodka for ultra grapefruit flavor)
1 shot of unsweetened grapefruit juice (if you're doing juice)
half a cup of ice
Fill to top w/ diet grapefruit soda. (I've been using these ICE drinks, but Fresca is also delicous)
This is a very refreshing drink, perfect for waiting by the pool for the brisket to finish. (HINT HINT Mr. EMORY. WHERE IS MY BRISKET!?)
What kind of cocktails are you enjoying this summer? And what do you think, should I rename this cocktail recipe... the Princess Theodora? They look good together, don't they?
