Grapefruit and Campari are a match made in cocktail heaven, especially when balanced by a botanical boost of gin.
2 oz Gin
12 oz Campari
34 oz Grapefruit cordial
1 twst Grapefruit peel
Combine all ingredients and shake with ice. Strain into an ice-filled glass and garnish.
To make Grapefruit cordial, warm 1 cup each grapefruit and lemon juice. Add 1 cup sugar, and stir until dissolved. Let cool, then add the zest of 1 or 2 grapefruit. Chill overnight, then strain.
