Pink Victrola Cocktail Drink Recipe

Every once in awhile I enjoy a good cocktail drink and this recipe is a popular one here in my household! If you don't like citrus fruits then this recipe isn't for you since it utitlizes pink grapefruit juice and fresh lemon juice. If you are having a nice cocktail party this is a nice drink to serve to your guests. Enjoy!

Pink Victrola Cocktail Recipe

1 ½ parts Hendrick’s Gin
1 ½ parts fresh pink grapefruit juice
½ part fresh lemon juice
½ part simple syrup
1 barspoon real grenadine*

Combine all ingredients into a mixing container. Ice, shake well and strain into a chilled cocktail glass. Take a grapefruit peel between your thumb and first two fingers skin facing the cocktail and squeeze your fingers extracting the fragrant oils on top of the cocktail.

*Equal parts pomegranate juice and sugar heated until the sugar has dissolved.

Please remember...you need to be age 21 years or older to consume alcholic beverages in the United States.
