I'm heading to Fire Island this weekend for a friends birthday party (happy birthday, Gil!), and for me it's really the kick off for the summer season. So I thought I'd share one of my favorite summer cocktails with you to celebrate the coming summer.
This cocktail is in my book. I call it the Summer Breeze and it's very simple to make:
1.5 oz citrus flavored rum
1 oz pink grapefruit juice
1 oz orange juice
Dash of grenadine
Maraschino cherry for garnish
Shake all ingredients together in a cocktail shaker with ice and strain into cocktail glass (I used a rocks glass). Garnish with the cherry!
I'll have some big news for you on Monday, but for right now, mum's the word!
