Grapefruit Juice and Gin

Gin and juice! After you try it, you are going to want to have the ingredients around for this gin and grapefruit juice cocktail all the time.  It is super easy to make with only 4 ingredients and no fuss! Just add them to a glass and stir. Seriously, less than 2 minutes a drink!

I created this drink one day after my sister called to say she was coming over. I had a new bottle of gin and a new bottle of Simply Grapefruit Juice in the fridge. It was super quick to put together, and it’s fun and beautiful!  How can you say no to fun and beautiful!  They are requirements on the checklist for exceptional host status!

Gin and Juice

I grabbed my new bottle of gin and I mixed it with juice!  That just screams Snoop Dogg to me.  But, lo and behold, I guess he knows what he is talking about. It’s fantastic!  Fresh, naturally sweet, and refreshing.

Fun fact: I had never tried gin until very recently.  I know, I know… “What!”  Sadly it’s true, I have always been a vodka girl.  Mostly because I was just familiar with vodka, but also because I thought gin was for old ladies. Who knew it was so amazing? 

Wait a minute, maybe I am an old lady?  Either way, I love it!

Grapefruit and Limes

Grapefruit has been a favorite of mine for as long as I can remember. There is usually at least one in my fridge at all times. I like to take my time and peel them and get every last juicy pod out of them, then sit with a big bowl as dessert while I watch tv.  Heaven.  Putting the juice in a cocktail is new to me, but it’s just as delicious.  

Limes, limes, limes.  I put limes in everything!  Sometimes they work and sometimes I’m like, “What was I thinking?” In this drink though they totally work!

Fresh lime juice is always my preferred method, but bottled is easier.  It really doesn’t matter how you add your limes, just make sure you add them.

Health Benefits

I know sometimes its hard to rationalize alcohol with being healthy, especially when you add the words Snoop Dogg in a post about it.  Hear me out!  Many, many years ago pharmacists were known to mix tonics and elixirs with herbs, flowers and fruits. Is it that out of the question to say that a naturally sweetened grapefruit juice and gin has some heath benefits? 

Grapefruit juice is packed with vitamins.  It is very high in vitamin C which is known to protect your cells from bacteria and viruses. In this year, 2020, I am looking for all the immune system help I can get! If that help comes from a gin and grapefruit juice cocktail, I am open to it.

Hey Good Looking!

The most superficial trait about this drink is it is beautiful!  The colors of the limes and grapefruit compliment each other so well.  It will definitely be the prettiest drink I photograph this month!  When you hand these out to your guests they will absolutely be stunned by their beauty. 

And if you want to make them even more beautiful, these are the glasses I used in the pictures.

For a different – but similar – look, these glasses are on Amazon and look fabulous. I’ve already added them to my cart.
