Bourbon grapefruit cocktail

Bourbon grapefruit cocktail


This bourbon grapefruit cocktail is a perfect combination of sweet, tart, fresh, and fruity! The refreshing blend of fresh-squeezed grapefruit juice and oaky bourbon makes it a great summer sipper.

This gem of a cocktail is fresh and fruity, tart and oaky, strong and boozy. It’s everything you want in a summer cocktail. Two will have you feeling heady. Three will have you happy as a pig in… you know the rest.

I can’t take credit full credit for this bourbon grapefruit cocktail. There’s this local joint a few minutes from our house that I frequent when I want fresh oysters, damn tasty food, and a good, stiff drink. If you live in Baltimore, check out Lib’s Grill. You won’t regret it
