This cocktail from Matt Gilpin of Highlands Bar and Grill is light, bright, and easy. And, as Highlands' chef/owner Frank Stitt says, it's "shockingly good—it makes you feel on top of the world, kind of like Gatsby."
Be sure to use freshly squeezed grapefruit juice and good vodka.
1 ounce vodka
1 ounce Lillet Blanc
2 1/2 ounces freshly squeezed grapefruit juice
Garnish: orange slice
Fill mixing glass halfway with ice. Add vodka, Lillet Blanc, and grapefruit juice. Stir until cold. Strain into ice-filled glass. Garnish with orange slice.
