GNR, aka Gin N' Roses
What better combination than gin and roses. Easy to make, just plan ahead.
Gin N’ Roses
Makes one cocktail
2 oz rose-infused gin or vodka (make 1 day ahead)
2 oz fresh pink grapefruit (or regular grapefruit) juice
1 oz fresh squeezed lime juice
splash of simple syrup
fresh grapefruit, rose petals and thyme spring for garnish
Fill cocktail shaker with all ingredients and a cup of ice. Shake vigorously (at least 20 times). Pour through strainer into desired glass.
Note: Remember, when making cocktails, if something is too strong (add more juice) or not strong enough (add more liquor) fix it until it is perfect for your taste. Cocktail recipes are only a guide to your comfort zone.
