‘Tis the Season for Citrus

Jack Bettridge
Posted: January 20, 2012

(continued from page 1)


If this isn’t in your cocktail tool box, you’re missing on a valuable morning (or anytime) quaff. Like just about any drink except the Gimlet, if does better with juice squeezed from fresh, ripe fruit. With the exception of the squeezing, it’s a breeze to make.

1 1/2 oz. vodka
Fresh squeezed orange juice

Pour vodka over ice in a highball glass. Fill with orange juice.

Salty Dog

This one is really a Greyhound made with gin and a salt rim. Either version is great for celebrating the ripening of grapefruits. Ride the dog or just get on the bus.

1 1/2 oz. gin
Fresh squeezed grapefruit juice

Dampen rim of highball glass and dip into a bed of salt. Fill glass with ice and pour in gin. Fill with grapefruit juice.
