Wild Blossom

It's the first day of spring! That and the blooming cherry blossoms across the street put me in mind of this recipe, which won the New York Department of Consumer Affairs' third Sidewalk Cafe Drink Mix-Off (and which we drank a fair amount of last summer).
  • 2 oz. Plymouth gin (I used Hendricks once and Tanqueray another time; both were fine)
  • 3/4 oz. St. Germain elderflower liqueur
  • 3/4 oz. grapefruit juice
  • 1 oz. cranberry juice
  • grapefruit twist or wedge, to garnish, optional

Combine all ingredients (save the optional garnish, of course) in an ice-filled cocktail shaker.

Shake well, then pour into a glass. Garnish, if you like.
