In addition to being the month most associated with all things love and romance, February is also National Grapefruit Month! Best know for their pink hues, grapefruits are loaded with vitamin C and plum full of pucker-your-mouth sweet-tart taste! The taste is distinct and offers a great pairing for everything from salads to salmon. In honor of National Grapefruit Month, we have a lively spin from our friends at the The Traveler Beer Company and Deep Eddy Vodka to help you celebrate!
Get ready to enjoy the essence of grapefruit in a fashionable new way with the The Traveler Beer Company and Deep Eddy Vodka Ruby Traveler cocktail and be sure to top it off with a refreshing slice of grapefruit to seal the delicious deal. As always, be sure to drink responsibly when celebrating this fab holiday and enjoy the refreshing zing of this crazy-good cocktail.
Creating the Ruby Traveler is super simple, just follow the steps below:
Deep Eddy Ruby Red Vodka
Traveler Grapefruit Shandy
In a shaker glass half-filled with ice, combine one shot of Deep Eddy -Ruby Red Vodka, one teaspoon of simple syrup, and two teaspoons each of lime juice and triple sec. Shake and strain into a pint glass filled with ice.
Fill the glass to the top with Traveler Grapefruit Shandy.
Garnish with a fresh orange or grapefruit slice.
NOTE: Similar to making cocktails with sparkling wine or soda, adding beer to a cocktail adds a slight effervescence and a unique flavor profile that complements other ingredients in the cocktail. The combination of these two leading brands is a perfect marriage this Valentine’s Day either out on the town or at home.
