Grapefruit Whistlestop

Adapted from a recipe by Hannah Lanfear, London.

“The Grapefruit Whistlestop is a lightly alcoholic cocktail, making it a perfect brunchtime cocktail and is very refreshing.” Hannah Lanfear.

40 ml (1.33 oz) Aperol

20 ml (.66 oz) Tio Pepe

15 ml (.5 oz) fresh lemon juice

10 ml (.33 oz) honey syrup

20 ml (.66 oz) fresh pink grapefruit juice

1 pink grapefruit twist

Shake over ice and fine-strain into a chilled coupette. Apply a spray of pink grapefruit oil to the rim of the coupette from the twist (for aroma but not bitterness), then discard.

gaz sez: Like a freshly-picked bunch of wildflowers, this one dances all over the place.  I love the way the Aperol and sherry play nice with each other here, and the grapefruit juice (and oils) makes for a great sandbox, too.

    This is my absolute favorite! It’s been hard to find pink grapefruit lately though.
