Grapefruit Bourbon Sour

Grapefruit Bourbon Sour

Who Needs a Drink?

 

But, really though… it’s the holidays.  

This one is easy, delicious and festive! Plus it incorporates fresh and abundant California citrus squeezed right into the drink that will send your taste buds into high gear.  

Recently, I’ve been into bourbon and that’s very convenient for me because it seems to be making a comeback! There hasn’t been a restaurant or bar that I’ve been to lately that doesn’t have some fancy schmancy version of a bourbon drink.

Fortunately, there hasn’t been a bourbon drink I haven’t liked!

Squeezing grapefruit into jar

The key to this particular drink is fresh squeezed grapefruit.  

Trust me…don’t skip this part.  

Just slice that baby in half and take out a little aggression on the juicy halves. The payoff is totally worth it!

If you’d rather use some other California citrus, go right ahead. You could use orange, blood orange, lemon and/or lime… you name it!

Whatever the combination, I’m sure this drink will be your new favorite libation throughout the holiday season (or any other season). 

I also added a festive sprig of rosemary to the glass – just remove the leaves from the bottom of the sprig and pop it in the glass.  

CHEERS!
