Take A Day + Chill. Plus a Cocktail Recipe

Feeling the pressure in the end of July?

Don’t forget that summer brings more than BBQs, trips to the cottage, and must-dos around the city. It also brings fresh fruit, easy dinners outside, and the odd ice cream cone.

I read this article from Manrepeller about a month ago and it hit me today when I realized it’s July 27th and I’ve only hosted a few Ooni Pizza nights….OMG…I’d better get a few more on the books before fall hits! So if you’re feeling the pressure to get in allll of those things you said you would back in March when it was still too cold to do anything maybe this is a good reminder. Take the pressure off!

Now here’s a nice little cocktail that’s easy to make. Note the recipe makes one ;) ;)

Zesty Grapefruit Gin Fizz

  • 2 oz gin

  • 3/4 oz Grapefruit Cordial

  • 1/2 oz of fresh squeezed grapefruit or lemon juice (optional: if you like it tart)

  • 1/2 oz egg white

  • 1-2 oz club soda (a splash or two)

While gathering ingredients, chill your shaker with ice and cold water. Empty shaker and add all ingredients except club soda. Dry-shake (without ice) for about 10-15 seconds. Add a handful (3 - 4) ice cubes and shake very well. Strain into a glass and top with soda. Garnish with grapefruit or lemon twist. 

Now sit back and enjoy!
