Blood Orange & Grapefruit Superstar

Blood Orange GreyhoundOne of my favorite cocktails—back when I could actually drink one and NOT be up until the wee hours of a the morning as a result—was the greyhound. Second only to a strong margarita on the rocks (with salt!), the pairing of grapefruit juice and gin was pure happy to me. So simple! SO GOOD.

So, the grapefruit in this drink is a nod to that old “friend,” the blood orange is me taking advantage of my obsession this month with that beautiful citrus, and the starfruit garnish makes it a strong contender for any Oscar party at the end of February. A nominee for best drink at an Oscar party, if you will.

Hope you like this one—and please, add a shot of gin for me!
