pretty in pink

here's a bright refreshing cocktail for you since the weather seems to be warm everywhere now. this drink is inspired by something similar we had before dinner here and is kind of a ramped up greyhound proper, one of our favorite go-to beverages. a splash of aperol gives it a unique flavor. it's an italian aperitif we've been seeing more of lately and is also a great addition to a glass of champagne. enjoy this cocktail on a sunny patio or rooftop deck with friends and check out a crab & corn appetizer recipe here on friday that would go perfectly. cheers!

Pretty in Pink
5 oz fresh grapefruit juice
2 oz gin
1.5 oz aperol
5 drops bitters
combine all ingredients in a cocktail shaker with ice and shake well. pour over ice into a highball glass and serve.

My husband is the barkeep in this house, so I'm going to pass this recipe on to him. Then I will demand he make it for me!

I used basil infused Aperol (left over from a summer punch), and this cocktail was a big hit. Tip: Make a pitcher and hand it to your friends, it won't last long.
