Pamplemousse

Pamplemousse cocktail with gin and grapefruit juice

There are a lot of cocktail recipes called “Pamplemousse” – it’s just the French word for “grapefruit.” This one, credited to San Francisco barman Ryan Fitzgerald, is our favorite version: perfectly balanced, light on the tongue, with a hint of summer from the basil garnish.

Ingredients

Instructions

Shake with ice and strain into a dainty, pretty glass.

Take a leaf of basil, slap it between your hands, and lay it gently on top of the drink. Try it with other fresh herbs, too, like mint or shiso.

An awesome cocktail app with curated recipes

I'm shocked that there are no reviews listed for this app. I found it on reddit's cocktails forum. The drink list in this app is much shorter than in many of the other apps I've seen, but the quality and reliability of the recipes is much much higher. These are more like the drinks you would get at a good mixology bar instead of the drink equivalent of your aunt's jello fruit mold that people just "love." I much prefer a list of cocktails that are reliable, good and repeatable than a huge pile of garbage recipes. This app is great and delivers great, reliable cocktails.
