Spring Cocktails – Pink Greyhound

I am thoroughly enjoying creating all kinds of fun spring projects and recipes, and today is all about spring cocktails! 

Spring Cocktails

Easter cocktails was the theme of our monthly cocktail challenge! And, since Easter is synonymous with spring I have made a pink, fruity cocktail sure to brighten up any spring table.

Spring Cocktails made with gin

As for spring cocktails, this one is called a Pink Greyhound.  It is a tart, but slightly sweet.  Made with fresh pink grapefruit juice, pure pomegranate juice, fresh mint, and of course gin.

I have to confess, I have never had gin before.  In fact, If you had told me a year ago that I would have tried whiskey, I would have laughed in your face. But, this Spiked Arnold Palmer cocktail sure made it enjoyable!

I think this cocktail shaker that has been sitting in my cupboard for the last 15 years has been used more in the last year than it has in the entire time I have owned it.

I will may never be a mixologist, but trying a new cocktail every now and then is fun.  This Pink Greyhound is a cocktail I can imagine I will enjoy not only in the spring, but well into the summer season.  It is so fresh and delicious! I love grapefruit juice, and paired with the POM juice & mint it is really quite refreshing.
