Grapefruit Cocktail + the Celebrate Southern Soiree Linkup!
One of my favorite parts about blogging is all of the amazing people that I have had the privilege of getting to know. Especially when I first started blogging, I immersed myself in the community and it’s a large reason that I’m still blogging today. To celebrate that community, I teaming up with a couple great bloggers for the Celebrate Southern Soiree linkup.
The Celebrate Southern Soiree is a linkup about the party! Each week Suz from 2 cats & chloe and J from A Hot Southern Mess join forces with other party hostesses to celebrate all-things-southern for this little linkup Soiree! Join the fun by linking up below! Please share any and all entertainment posts! Think: home decor, wonderful recipes, DIY or even just party ideas!

This grapefruitcocktail is a copycat recipe from a restaurant here in Nashville called Tavern. It’s one of my all time favorites and I’ve wanted to try recreating it at home for a while now. It consists of gin, grapefruit, ginger, and basil.
I kept this cocktail simple. Just muddle a few slices of ginger and some basil together. Shake together with the gin, drain, and then add the grapefruit juice. Easy peasy. (no lemon squeezy (too much??)).
We’ve already had a few good hot, sticky Nashville summer days and this cocktail makes it allll better.Print
- 2 thin slices of fresh ginger (inch wide by 1/8 inch thick)
- 6 basil leaves
- 2 ounces of gin
- 8 ounces of grapefruit juice
- In a cocktail mixer, muddle the ginger and basil and add in the gin.
- Shake thoroughly.
- Pour the gin in a tall glass with ice.
- Mix in the grapefruit juice.
- Optional: Add in a few small pieces of the basil and one of the slices of ginger.
