grapefruit gimlets

it's happy hour time at the yumcoast!

this cocktail started with the june issue of bon appetit, but then we shook it up a bit with the addition of fresh grapefruit juice (does that make it not a gimlet?) to make a deliciously sweet and tart summery cocktail.

grapefruit gimlet
(makes two cocktails)
1/2 cup grapefruit vodka
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons simple syrup (equal parts sugar and water boiled until sugar dissolves)
splash of fresh grapefruit juice
lime slices to garnish
ice cubes

place all ingredients except lime slices in cocktail shaker. shake quickly and vigorously for 8 seconds. strain into two glasses and garnish with lime. sip and enjoy!
