Grapefruit Gimlet

I'm a cocktail person. Not a beer, wine, or mixed drink girl, a cocktail girl. So, when it comes to scheming up the perfect Valentine's Day date, starting it with a themed cocktail is a no-brainer. The pink hue from the ruby red grapefruit makes this cocktail a great Valentine's Day drink. Have this drink with a light appetizer to start your evening, and make your date night last a little longer. So, shake one up for your honey this year. They will love you forever.

Grapefruit Gimlet for Two
4 ounces gin
4 ounces red grapefruit juice
1/2 ounce simple syrup

Make sure you use fresh grapefruit juice, so start out by juicing 1 grapefruit. Once juiced, combine the grapefruit juice, gin, and simple syrup in a cocktail shaker with ice and shake until chilled (the outside of the shaker will frost over). Pour into your favorite coupe glasses and garnish with a piece of grapefruit.
