Bourbon adds subtle toasty-sweet notes to a simple drink made with pink grapefruit juice. Shake this one up, and pat yourself on the back for taking a fresh-squeezed dose of Vitamin C.
Note: To make simple syrup, combine 1 cup water with 1 cup sugar in a small saucepan and heat over medium heat, stirring constantly, until sugar is dissolved. Cool before using. Simple syrup will keep in a sealed container in the refrigerator for up to 5 days.
1 ounce fresh juice from 1 pink grapefruit
1 1/2 ounces bourbon
1/2 ounce simple syrup (see note)
Garnish: grapefruit wedge (optional)
Fill a cocktail shaker 2/3 full with ice. Add grapefruit juice, bourbon, and simple syrup. Shake vigorously until well-chilled, about 20 seconds. Strain into ice-filled rocks glass, garnish with grapefruit wedge if desired.
