This Thanksgiving-inspired cosmo is a festive, rosy-hued cocktail. Some very good friends gave us a beautiful bottle of Yazi Ginger Flavored Vodka from Hood River Distillers, which I highly recommend if you can find it. If not, use plain vodka, and toss a few coins of freshly sliced ginger root into your cocktail shaker. Hubs and I really enjoyed the uh, “recipe testing” for this one. ; )
- 4 ounces Ginger Flavored Vodka (or substitute plain and toss in a few slices of fresh ginger root)
- 2 ounces cranberry juice
- Juice from 1 freshly squeezed grapefruit
- Juice from 1 freshly squeezed lime
- A twist of grapefruit peel, a slice of lime, OR a thin slice of fresh ginger
In a cocktail shaker combine the first 4 ingredients. Add plenty of ice, shake well, and pour into martini glasses. Garnish with a twist of grapefruit peel, a slice of lime, or a thin slice of fresh ginger.
