This cocktail recipe was born out of a desire to refresh the Collins. Although grapefruit isn’t always my favorite, the combination of gin and grapefruit in this refreshing citrus cocktail is one way to get me to eat (or rather, drink!) Ruby Reds. Grapefruit disguised in a costume of alcohol is always welcome in my home. This recipe is a great twist on the classic, and I hope you enjoy!

Grapefruit Collins

  • 2 oz grapefruit juice
  • 2 oz gin
  • 1 oz simple syrup (or less, to taste)
  • 2 oz soda water

Shake grapefruit juice, gin, and simple syrup well over ice. Pour into an ice filled glass, and top with club soda.
