Tex&Co Sipper

Texas and Colorado ingredients make for a fine drink for a hot day at any altitude.
2 oz Gin, Roundhouse
1 12 oz Grapefruit cordial (See note)
4 lf Mint
3 oz Soda water
Smack mint, add gin and grapefruit cordial to shaker with ice - shake. Strain if you like, but I prefer the torn mint leaf "garnish". Pour over ice and top with soda.
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.
A play on the Southside using Imbibe's delicious grapefruit cordial recipe.
