(It was noted to me that for a blog called ‘code and cocktails’ that I don’t have many cocktail related posts - so here we go:)
- 2 1/2 oz. gin
- 3/4 oz. grapefruit juice
- 1/2 oz. sweet vermouth
- shake well with ice, strain into cocktail glass.
I enjoy the combination of gin and grapefruit in this drink but I have two issues with it which I’d like to experiment with:
- I think it is too heavy on the gin - I think it overloads the grapefruit.
- I wonder if something like St. Germaine might be a good exchange for sweet vermouth - obviously it would change the drink - but I think it might be for the better.
As an aside: cocktaildb is a great resource - I wish I could filter out drinks
for which I don’t have ingredients however. That is why I am building
(slowly) my own cocktail recipe website
(defdrink). (The primary
(defdrink) is to be a vehicle for me to learn Clojure)
