A Twist on the Great Gatsby

A Twist on the Great Gatsby











Hooray, it’s almost the weekend! We have been waiting for Friday all week and we can almost taste that refreshing cocktail we are going to be enjoying this weekend. We know you guys are just as excited as we are. We recently found this great cocktail recipe during our usual late night hours perusing the blogosphere.  This cocktail immediately piqued our interest, mostly for its name. This refreshing drink comes to us from Matt Gilpin of Highlands Bar and Grill. Feel free to check out the original article here. This cocktail is super refreshing and somewhat keeps us in the summer mindset. Now, we are by no means expert bartenders which is why we like this recipe so much. This drink only calls for 3 ingredients! Hallelujah! Vodka, Lillet Blanc, and Grapefruit juice are the only ingredients for this simple, yet refreshing cocktail. Of course we thought we had a grapefruit already and failed to pick that up at the store (yeah, just an orange). We decided to test out our creativity and simply switched out the grapefruit for an orange! Hey, they are both in the citrus family. Even with the substitution this drink was still super refreshing and downright tasty. Don’t worry, we are going to pick up that grapefruit and try it one more time this weekend. Also, this drink only takes about 5 minutes to prepare and presto, you have a great drink ready to impress anyone that walks through your door.

We hope you guys have a great weekend and get a chance to try out your bartending skills! Let us know how your cocktails turn out in the comments below. Until next time…
