This week for thirsty Thursday, we’re gonna be pairing a beautiful Charcuterie Board, made possible with our amazing Charcuterie Pack, with a Beautiful Ruby Pink Martini, a fun pairing to celebrate the beautiful summer we’ve had.
To make this gorgeous drink you’ll need:
- 1 oz of Vodka
- 1 oz of Gin (1 shot glass is equal to 1oz)
- ½ a cup of Grapefruit Juice
- Sparkling Water or Lemon Lime Soda (Such as 7up or Sprite)
- Garnishes such as Grapefruit Peel, Slices or Maraschino Cherries
Making this cocktail is super easy, all you need to do is take your shaker (or really anything such as a bottle with a cap, a jar or even another glass with something to cover to top)
Then, place about a handful of ice in your shaker and add your two shots - one of Vodka and one of Gin.
Then add your half a cup of Grapefruit Juice and close your shaker/container of sorts and shake for about 15 seconds to make sure it all really blends and gets chilled by the ice.
Now, take your Martini Glass or really any glass, could be a wine glass or really anything available and pour your mix into it
To finish, simply top off the rest of the glass with either Sparkling Water or Lemon Lime Soda and garnish with either a piece of Grapefruit Peel, a Slice of Grapefruit or for a more traditional look, try a Maraschino Cherry on a little skew like they would an olive in a traditional Martini.
It’s time to sit back, relax, and enjoy paradise.
