Pink Victrola

Here’s the last recipe in the pink grapefruit “series”.  I decided that, since I enjoyed these so much, it might be worth just keeping pink grapefruit juice on hand as one of my pantry staples.  I came across this recipe on Pinterest – I figure it was a (low resolution) scan of some recipes published by Hendrick’s that they might have distributed with a bottle of gin (maybe?).  In any case, here is one of many blogs that featured this recipe as well – https://rebelbartender.com/2011/05/04/recipe-pink-victrola/

I did not make this with club soda, but it just dawned on me I might want to try it with some of my San Pellegrino Limonata….hmmm, another day I guess.  Since I didn’t add it, though, I found I could fit the cocktail in an old fashioned glass with some ice.  Adding the soda will, obviously, give you a little more volume and make it a little easier to sip at any time of the day.  Honestly, I really liked it as is, sans soda.  And, it might have been my favorite among all of the grapefruit cocktails, but it’s a tough call.  I’ll let you be the judge.  Cheers!
