1⁄2 oz Raspberry syrup (1:1 simple, steep overnight w/mashed berries)

Combine all ingredients in mixing glass and stir. I actually prefer this citrus drink stirred is has a richer body. Strain over large ice chunk in rocks glass.

  • Used cassis in place of the raspberry syrup — ★★★
  • Maybe 4.5. Has a refreshing but bitter snap. Nicely balanced, and not run-of-the-mill tasting. — ★★★★
  • Felt a little sweet but I think maybe my grapefruit just wasn't tart enough? — ★★★★
  • Tried this with raspberry liqueur and it did not work all that well. Finish had a medicinal edge. — ★★

Thanks for sharing- this is a great drink, very refreshing. I will try the raspberry syrup, but for now I muddled a couple fresh berries in simple syrup which worked well. I think St. Germain might also be good here when fresh berries are harder to come by.


Dan commented on 9/28/2011:

I'm thinking that a tsp or so of raspberry jam might work as a sub, although it would lack the vibrancy of fresh berries. You'd want to double-strain to remove the seeds, presumably. I have found that Aperol + Campari gives a grapefruit-like flavor, so the addition of real juice makes perfect sense. The raspberry is unexpected with the grapefruit; it uncharacteristically appeals to me. Thanks, Kyle!


The whole grapefruit + raspberry accord is like the Blinker, which is also a great drink. I wonder if Grenadine (homemade) + lemon might sub for raspberry syrup? 

Thanks,

Zach
