Rosemary and Grapefruit Bourbon Fizzzz

To make one Rosemary and Grapefruit Bourbon Fizzzz:

(recipe adapted a tad from The Artful Desperado’s Bourbon Rosemary Fizz)

Gather your weapons:

  • cocktail shaker
  • muddler
  • one small sprig of fresh rosemary
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed grapefruit
  • 1 oz bourbon
  • ginger ale
  • ice cubes
  • sprig of rosemary and grapefruit rind peel for garnish
  • oh, and a low-ball or old-fashioned glass of some sort to drink it out of.  If you want.  Don’t let me pressure you.

To make it:

Drop your sprig of rosemary into the bottom of your shaker, and add your 1/4 cup grapefruit juice. Muddle until you can really smell the rosemary fragrance.  Add a few cubes of ice and your ounce of bourbon.  Shake it like you mean it.

Drop a few more ice cubes into your glass, and strain your cocktail into the glass.  Top with the ginger ale, and garnish with a sprig of rosemary and grapefruit peel…oh, and a fancy swizzle stick.  Cheers!
