I love a slushy drink, like a blended margarita or a julep. They are so festive and vacationy and they have just a hint of childish nostalgia for slurpees. But I always feel like they are a bit too much bother with all that blending, and I get anxious that I won’t get the slushy texture right. This one comes together with a perfect slushiness and the tart grapefruit goes wonderfully with herbaceous gin.
Make sure to peel the grapefruit really well, otherwise you will be chewing on a lot of roughage with your cocktail.
grapefruit & gin slush:
- 2 cups grapefruit sorbet
- 1 pink grapefruit
- 4 ounces gin
Peel grapefruit, removing as much with pith as possible. Roughly chop and freeze in a zip-top bag until frozen solid.
Combine sorbet, frozen grapefruit and gin in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth. Serves 4.
