Right now, we are in the peak season for grapefruits, which means they are sweeter than they are bitter. This factor makes the citrus fruit the ideal cocktail mixer for the end of winter.
What you’ll need:
2 oz bourbon
2 oz club soda
2 oz fresh squeezed grapefruit juice
1/2 tsp maple syrup
Combine the liquids in a rocks glass and stir with a cocktail spoon. Add in the maple syrup and stir to dissolve before adding the ice at the end.
If you happen to have maple bourbon on hand, I’d suggest using that in this drink instead.
