Freshly Pressed Cocktail

I'm loving tasty cocktails featuring the ruby red citrus grapefruit. Case in point: the Freshly Pressed.

This refreshing little tipple features my favorite spirit, gin. the juice from half of a grapefruit, Rose's lime juice, and grapefruit bitters. Its perfectly-pink hue is delicate and feminine, making it a lovely option for a girls' night in.

For the recipe, read on. Freshly pressed grapefruit juice is essential for this recipe - you really can't cheat with anything else.

Lemon peel
