Twisted Pink

Day 149



Twisted Pink
4 shots out of 5

You can't celebrate National Pink Day without a coconut rum and juice mixed Twisted Pink cocktail!  This fruity cocktail is perfect for today!




I FINALLY found grapefruit juice at the grocery store!!  

The store I used to get it at has closed due to remodeling, so I now go to a different store which has NOT had it every time I go.  

Last night was a breakthrough!  My new store now has it and I couldn't be happier!!  

I just hope they will still have it when this one is gone.

I gave tonight's cocktail 4 shots out of 5.  

It took me a few sips to get "re-acquainted" with the taste of grapefruit juice, but once I did.......game on!  

I am truly enjoying this cocktail and kinda wish I had made a bigger one.  

I like the fact that each ingredient is equal in quantity to the others.  I can taste all three ingredients in here and they compliment each other nicely.  

This would be a good mellow tasting cocktail to have when I'm not feeling the fruitier, sweeter cocktails.  

Tonight I am using one of my new cocktail glasses that I had purchased recently at our local BevMo...........in case you were wondering!




Here is a photo of the end result:

Here is the recipe for a Twisted Pink:

  • 1 oz cranberry juice
  • 1 oz grapefruit juice

In a cocktail glass add crushed ice and all ingredients above.  Stir well and enjoy!




Welcome back grapefruit juice, you were truly missed!!

Cheers!!

  2. There's just something about summer that makes me want a fruity drink, especially when it also includes Malibu rum.
