GHST Summer Cocktail Recipe
Are you ready for it?
Your ultimate summer cocktail- refreshing, light, delish and EASY.
Enter the GHST (pronounced ghost- to be extra stealthy). Shout out to my better half who came up with the name; we tried desperately to come up with an “O” ingredient, but alas, we decided to keep it mysterious...ha.
HINT: If you can pick up some freshly squeezed grapefruit juice from the store- or use a juicer, that will make your life easier.
I squeezed mine by hand and made a mess- but it tasted just the same!
Don’t use condensed or bottled juice; it’s bitter and full of sugar- it just won’t taste the same. Trust me on this; fresh is worth it!
Mix together the following ingredients
3 oz. Freshly Squeezed Grapefruit Juice
1 tsp (or go without) organic honey
1.5 oz good quality Tequila (my favourite is Espolon, the Blanco or Resposado is perfect for this)
- Pour mixture over ice and top with Soda Water.
- Garnish with an obnoxiously large slice of Grapefruit, a good sprinkle of great Sea Salt, and a few Mint Leaves if you’ve got them. The Mint isn’t a must, but it looks pretty. The salt is a must; it balances everything out!
- Drink up and pretend you are on a beach somewhere.
Enjoy, and please remember to drink responsibly, my friends, Happy Summer!
