After one week of relief from the heat, we are back to 100 degree temperatures. And with that comes a need for a refreshing cocktail. And I found one.
A few months ago, to celebrate the marriage of my friend, Kat, we went out for drinks. All of us ordered this vodka, St. Germain, grapefruit drink and since then, I have been trying to replicate it. I had never heard of St. Germain, and when I went to purchase it, I learned that it was some fancy stuff. But I figure the bottle will last me about 5 years. (We clearly are lightweights.)
Here are the players for my drink. (I am taking suggestions on a name, unless there is already a name floating out there of which I am unaware!)
1/2 lime, squeezed over ice
1 part vodka (we used the locally made Tito’s)
1/2 part St. Germain
1 1/2 part grapefruit juice
Tonic water to taste
They are a little too easy to drink.
On another note, I made this Lemon Chicken Soup tonight and fell in love. Try it.
