Have you heard of Galentine’s Day? If you’re a fan of Parks and Recreation you have heard Amy Pohler share her love of Galentine’s Day. Valentine’s Day is all about romance, but Galentine’s day is about celebrating lady friends. A holiday I can totally get down. When Ménage à Trois Vodka asked me to shake up a cocktail to celebrate Galentine’s Day I quickly said Yes! Plus I’ll find any excuse to a sip on vodka.
My first thought was to create a martini, but then I thought why not highlight winter citrus in a vibrant cocktail that I knew my girlfriends would love. I decided to highlight the ménage à trois citrus vodka, but wanted a bit of bite in my cocktail so I reached for my beloved ruby red grapefruit. At its peak in the season ruby reds are a South Texas treasure. Bright, juicy they taste of summer. I knew it would pair perfectly with the clean citrus tones of the ménage à trois citrus vodka.
- 4 grapefruit wedges
