It’s finally turned to winter here in the northeast, and it’s cold! I’m dreaming of warmer weather and wishing we could escape somewhere beachside… summer seems so far away!
Sagittarius is the sign connected with travel and I always feel that travel bug come on in the beginning of December (it doesn’t help that I grew up in Arizona and anything below 65 degrees is enough to send me into full hibernation mode or running for the airport!) So, if we can’t go to the beach, the best I can offer is a summery cocktail that brings an island-y vibe into your home instead!
1 1/2 Vodka *I got fancy and used Ketel One Grapefruit and Rose
Grapefruit Juice to fill
Lime wedge, for garnish
“Straightforward, classic drink.”
In a Collins glass filled with ice, pour in vodka. Top off with grapefruit juice and a slice of lime as garnish (I add a little fresh squeezed lime as well!) Violá! So simple, and just like that, you’ll feel (almost) like you’re relaxing poolside!
Let me know if this gives you the island-vibe you need to get through to the holidays!
