Ginger Greyhound

This week, I bought my first batch of grapefruits of the season, which means I’ll likely go on a grapefruit recipe rampage. This ginger greyhound is just my jumping off point, but I can see this cocktail becoming a staple for me this winter.

What you’ll need:
2 oz dry gin
2 oz fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice
Ginger ale

Put the ice in the bottom of a rocks glass and pour the gin over it. Squeeze the grapefruit juice into the glass and add in the pulp as well. Top off with what should be about 3-4 ounces of ginger ale and stir.

I used half of a grapefruit and its pulp to add another dimension to the drink, but for those who aren’t pulp fans it isn’t a must. The ginger ale brings out the flavor in both the grapefruit juice and the gin, which makes this a more three-dimensional greyhound.
