The grapefruit GT sounds great, which Gin would you recommend for this?
Hey Anne, I’m not really a gin expert, so I used an rather standard Gordon’s Gin in this recipe. I would go with a citrusy gin, as that pairs well with the grapefruit. Enjoy!
It sounds great. I like to take lemonade syrup.Its taste is awesome. I love it
