Cocktails: The Great Gatsby

Eat & DrinkVeronica Casson2 Comments

We are very big fans of fancy cocktails at our house as long as they

  • Don’t taste too sweet
  • Are made with ingredients we have around 
  • Look pretty.

A new favorites is The Great Gatsby. We discovered this drink when receiving a lot of grapefruit in our farm delivery box. 

I am not a huge fan of grapefruit. What if, I thought, I combine it with booze? That might help. It totally did!

Here's how:


  • 1 shot of Vodka
  • 1 shot of Dry Vermouth
  • Juice from one half of a freshly squeezed grapefruit

Mix all ingredients in cup and poor over ice. Garnish with lemon.
Also can be made up, using a martini shaker.
